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,
“Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.”
“But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.”
“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”
“Children's children are
the crown of old men; and the glory of children are
“Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also
, and he praiseth her.”
“Children, obey your
parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.”
“For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.”
