Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.


Father we are often in a quandtay as to how to restore what has been destroyed. Especially when it is the very foundation on which human society is founded, designed and determined by You. 

Father, the family structure and foundation, which is in accordance with Your Word, is clearly recorded throughout the Bible. Therefore, to renew what has been destroyed means we must return to the first principles and the divine origin of human relationships. These are clearly spoken of in Genesis and Ephesians. 

Genesis 2:18 & 22-24 (NLT) 
18 Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” 22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. 23 “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’” 24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. 

Father the New Testament reaffirm this foundational relationship: ",..... each man must love his wife .......and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:33 (NLT)  1 Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Lord, for this is the right thing to do. 2 “Honor your father and mother.” Ephesians 6:1-2 (NLT

Father you have shown that the nobility of a husband is established by his love for his wife. The dignity of his wife is seen in the respect for her husband as his suitable helper created for this extraordinary purpose.  And the value their children is vindicated by their obedience to their parents in honoring them and passing on Biblical faith to coming generations.

Triune God you are the center of these relationships giving humanity and the family balance and significance. This is the foundation upon which human and divine relationships can be renewed and restored. This is made possible through the sacrifice of Jesus for our sins who alone will reconcile God and man through faith in Him. 

Thank you, Father for Your marvelous love, matchless grace, and glorious plan. In Jesus name. Amen.
