Prayer Week 20

On their website, Compassion has compiled a list of 52 specific ways to pray for your sponsored child. Each Sunday I will feature one of these. For the complete list, please go HERE.
Week 20 Honoring Parents (or guardians): Pray that _________will honor and respect parents and grandparents, or guardians, who are caring for this child.
“Honor your father and mother” which is the first commandment with a promise, “that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.” ~ Ephesians 6:2,3
I recently heard that learning to respect authority as a child is the first step to learning submission to God and God’s authority on our lives. Let us pray that our sponsored children (and our own children) can understand the importance of honoring their parents, grandparents or guardians, and in doing so, prepare their own hearts for submission to God’s authority over their lives.
