Dear heavenly Father, how I thank and praise You for my parents who have been so faithful in loving and caring for me with such selflessness. I am so grateful that I was their child and that You saw fit for me to become part of their family.
I know that so often I have taken them for granted and have not been as helpful as I should, but their constant love and support throughout my life has become such a wonderful example of parenthood and I am so grateful for them both.
Draw close to them I pray and surround them with Your loving arms. Bless them with both health and contentment and be to them a tower of strength, as the both are getting a little older. I ask this in Jesus name,
Heavenly Father, thank You for ordaining that we are placed in families, and for guiding us in the biblical roles and responsibilities we have towards one another. Help me to be obedient to You, in thought word and deed, and help me to be an example of a godly life in my own family.. and to those, in the wider community, with whom I come in contact. Thank You for my own parents and thank You that I am Your child. May I live and work to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Colossians 3:20
