Praying through Proverbs 17:6

Heavenly Father, thank You for putting us in families and for the roles and responsibilities You ordained within the family unit. I recognise the responsibility on fathers, mothers, and grandparents in bringing up their children and grandchildren in the fear of the Lord. Thank You for the godly father, mothers, men, and women you have placed in each of our lives. I pray Your blessing on the men of our nation - the father and grandfathers of our land, and pray that each one would take the responsibilities of training up their sons and daughters in the way they should go so that each becomes a crown of glory in their old age and are praised and honoured by their children. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN. 

“Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.”
(Proverbs 17:6)
