Happy Father’s Day!

Father's Day 006

Remember to Celebrate

Your Heavenly Father Every Day!

I wish a most Happy Father’s Day to fathers everywhere.  To single moms who are carrying the full responsibility of raising your children, know that prayers are with you also for daily encouragement and strength.  Being a parent can be an overwhelming assignment at times.  Never forget that God has entrusted each child to you to lead, guide and protect through adulthood.  This is a sacred role.  It is easy to lose sight of this in the swirl of daily activities and happenings.

Do Not Go It Alone!

Without a firm relationship with your heavenly Father, parenting can be daunting.  Life can be daunting if you try to go it alone.  You will be deficient if you try to handle it all in your natural strength.  It is through His grace that you will prevail.

Today as we honor fathers in many countries of the world I pray that each of us will take extra time to honor our heavenly Father.  He is there for you twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.  He never takes His eyes off of you and His divine plan for you.  Know that His plan is unfolding exactly as it should in His perfect timing.

Blessed to be a Blessing on This Day

Enjoy your family today.  Reach out to the fatherless on this day.  Reach out to single parents today.  May God grace you with abundance and love in your home today and always.

Quotes to Ponder This Week

“For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.  In this manner, therefore, pray:  Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.  Your kingdom come.  Your will be done.  On earth as it is in heaven.  give us this day our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.  For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”  ~Jesus, Matthew 6:8-13

“He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” ~Psalm 91:4

“Ar scath a cheile a mhairimid”-“We all live in the shelter of each other.” ~Irish Saying

A Prayer Request

Thank you for your continued faithfulness to pray. Please keep all who serve our country, our diplomatic corps, our servicemen and women and their families in prayer for salvation and safety. They are our front-line on the battlefield, let us be their front-line in the spirit. Also, let us cover all who have come home wounded that they and their families will receive the kindness, help and support they need to go forward in their lives. May the Lord bless them and keep them safe.

Pray for all throughout the world for hedges of protection against radical Muslim extremists and all forms of terrorism. We have long prayed for spiritual victory over radical Islam in Esther’s Warriors Ministry. We now see the reality of this threat come to the forefront in this time in world history. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Please pray for all in authority over us, for the full truth to come forth concerning Benghazi as new hearings will be held. We as Americans and the families of those murdered in Benghazi deserve to be told the truth. Hearings to seek the whole truth have nothing to do with politics as some in current leadership like to posit. Our people were left to be brutally killed. As new information comes to light the only political implication many of us see is a possible cover-up before a Presidential election. Scandals are rife in this administration. We the people are not that naive. Pray that God will open doors to let the truth flow for all of us in this United States of America! The truth shall keep us free.

May God richly bless the United States of America, bring to light every single crooked place and keep her safe. May we arise united once again as One Nation Under God in this auspicious season in our country’s history. We continue to pray for truth to prevail as we saturate this country in prayer and stand for all that is right in America and for all of us who call ourselves American. These are treacherous times and now more than ever we must maintain our walk. Fail not in this hour.

Please Join Me in Prayer

Father God, We thank You for the family You have given each of us whether by blood or friendship.  You place others in our life and in our family circle.  Equip us to respect each one You send to us.  Teach us to love one another as You have loved us.  Strengthen all fathers to be the leaders You would have them be in their family.   We thank You that You keep Your hand on this United States of America and that we will remain One Nation Under God.  Raise us up in fullness ‘for such a time as this.’ We pray this in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen and Amen.
