For the love of fathers, husbands, sons and brothers

This can only be accomplished when I ask for divine guidance in responding to the attacks on our men that become manifest as estrangement, chronic illness, economic hardship, abuse, addictions, and hopelessness. For I know by my faith in Christ Jesus, the victory has already been won, and the enemy has no more claim on the faithful. I declare this truth for my family and community, and for all generations past, present and future. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Jeremiah 31:22 How long will thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? For the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.

This from Lloyd John Ogilvie in Drumbeat of Love: The Unlimited Power of the Spirit as Revealed in the Book of Acts (1976) p.158

William Law was right: “There is nothing which makes us love a man so much as praying for him.” And prayer-born love frees us to recognize that the person is himself God’s greatest answer to prayer.

Faith is a touchy subject, and yet we know when you stand for nothing, you fall for anything – especially in the social network.

All it takes is one mustard seed of faith to get a fresh start.
