Prayer for Proverbs 1:8

“Listen, my son, to your father's instruction, and don't reject your mother's teaching,”

Praying through Proverbs 1:8

Heavenly Father, thank You for placing us in families and for giving us the understanding that parents are ordained by You, to train up their children in the reverential fear of the Lord. In a world where honour and respect for both parents and older mentors is becoming increasingly scorned, we pray that children and young people would be willing to listen to their fathers' words of instruction, and to hold fast to the teachings they receive from their mothers. We plead Your protection over Christian families everywhere, and pray that Your name would be honoured and respected by old and young alike - to Your praise and glory - this we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
