Prayer For Fathers To Fulfil Their Spiritual Headship

Heavenly Father Who caused all the Holy Scriptures to be written for our learning, open the eyes of the fathers of Christian families everywhere to their God-given position of leadership in their own family unit. Father, we know that the family unit is the foundation upon which the truth of Your laws are founded, and that a family that prays together and lifts up the Lord Jesus Christ into His rightful position in each of their heart, is the family that functions in godly unity and has it's priorities secured in You.

May the foundation upon which Christian marriage and the family unit are established, remain as firmly rooted in the homes of believers today as it was when God first walked with Adam in the garden, in the cool of the evening, and ordained that a man and his wife should become one flesh and together they should live in the bond of unity and love, and be fruitful in spirit and in deed.

Help the men who are husbands and fathers of Christian families today to become the godly men they were created to be, and may they start to re-establish their God-ordained position as head of their own families, and become men who will courageously lead their wives and children into deeper spiritual knowledge and understanding of their Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ, in Whose name we pray,
