You designed the nuclear family as the cornerstone of a stable and functioning society.
The home was the place to raise, nurture and develop the next generation and the next and the next.
By Your design, Mothers and Fathers, functioning together was the way to ensure healthy children and communities. In their home children could grow to become responsible adults.
For decades we have ignored two-parent homes as the cornerstone for passing on truth to future generations.
We mocked the marriage covenant; undercut the father’s role and enticed women to seek fulfillment in the world. The result is generations of children adrift…unprepared for adulthood. Then we wonder at the breakdown of social order. We are shocked at what our children…and their children have become.
Oh, Lord, rescue our children from our irresponsible life choices. May the next generation lead us back to a future of stable homes, peace, and community.
Scripture: These words I am commanding you today must be kept in mind, and you must teach them to your children and speak of them as you sit in your house, as you walk along the road, as you lie down, and as you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7
