Trustworthy Father

You provide me a place to run when I’m overwhelmed. You provide me a model of what a father should be…thank You for my security.

Everywhere one looks in America there are children growing up in houses without fathers. Absent fathers whether they are physically absent or simply distracted…are a critical cause of the violence and crime we are experiencing. We cannot heal as a nation or return to Your days of blessing without restoring our homes. We need intact homes where parents think of their children ahead of their own selfish agendas.

You promise in Your word You will restore our homes if we repent of our pursuit of “happiness”. We need trustworthy fathers in their lives so that our children can learn to trust their heavenly Father.


Scripture: “He will turn the hearts of the fathers back to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers…” Malachi 4:6

Creator of Life

In Your perfection, You created male and female and called it “Very good”.  This act formed the basis for society, became the foundation of the family, and functioned to provide stability throughout history.

Today in America, we are trying…and failing dramatically…to redefine this universal, godly standard for marriage and family.

The dismal results show the destruction of the nuclear family and the predictable increase in mental health issues, dramatic increases in crime, more poverty, and the significant “dumbing down” of future generations.

Recent studies of the roots of mass shooters worldwide reveal fatherless boys are the shooters in every case.

Lord, we need to rebuild the American family to restore our civil culture.  Replace the cartoonish “toxic male” with Promise Keepers who model everyday manhood as You created it.  Start with me!


Scripture:  “He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:6

Creator and Defender of the Family

The most important thing You ever did for me…after paying my sin debt…has been to place me in a loving family.  Thank You for nurturing, loving parents.

You created family as critical to a functional society.  A recent secular study, “Why Boys Are Struggling” links 53 mass shooting in developed countries to dad deprived boys. All six mass killings in America murdering more than 10 people from Sandy Hook to Uvalde, fit that description. We’ve been attacking fatherhood since Murphy Brown declared on her TV show she didn’t need a father to raise her baby. Today this relentless attack on families continues as our noble elites declare they cannot define “Woman”.

Lord, we cannot survive this insanity.  Please drive home the importance both parents bring to the well-being of their children.

Kids spell “love”, “T-I-M-E”.  Restore our families.


Scripture: “He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents…” Malachi 4:6a
