Key Word/Phrase: Godly Father

Key Scripture: Ephesians 6:4, Psalm 127:3. Proverbs 22:6

And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.

Prayer Guide for Church Members:

“God, teach my pastor how to be a Godly father. Bless his efforts to love, to instruct, and to discipline the heritage that You have given him. Make him a gentle and understanding man, not one who provokes his children by being harsh and demanding, or by being an inconsistent example. Help my pastor to submit to Your process of sanctification in his life through child rearing. Give him wisdom as he helps his children grow and mature physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Help him to be the kind of person he wants his children to be. Show him his desperate need for Your grace in guiding the small hearts that You have entrusted to him. Let his children grow up to be Godly. Let them follow in Your steps and bring joy to my pastor’s heart, and to Yours. God, teach my pastor how to be a Godly father. In Jesus’ name, amen.”

Prayer Guide for Pastors’ Wives:

Help my husband to submit to Your process of sanctification in his life through child rearing. Give him wisdom as he helps our children grow and mature physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Help him to be the kind of person he wants his children to be. Show him his desperate need for Your grace in guiding the small hearts that You have entrusted to him. Let our children grow up to be Godly. Let them follow in Your steps and bring joy to my husband’s heart and mine, and to Yours. God, teach my husband how to be a Godly father. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
