“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. “1 John 3:1
“All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him.”Matthew 11:27
Lord, I lift up the fatherless ones today, and I ask that You would reveal Your Father’s heart to them. For those who were not fathered well, I pray they will come to know that they have a good Father in You. I pray they will come to know Your kindness, mercy, and comfort.
I pray that You will heal the father wounds in Your body, and bring a fresh revelation of the Father’s love. Teach us to forgive our own fathers, and teach the fathers to repent. I pray for reconciliation wherever possible, and that You will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers (Malachi 4:6).
I pray that every wrong picture of You that has been painted by an earthly father will be destroyed in the minds and hearts of Your sons and daughters. I pray that every lie, every misconception, and every wrong perception the enemy has planted about You will be torn down, and that the truth of who You are as our Father will be revealed. I pray that, in place of distance, we will know Your nearness; instead of a quick temper, we will find You to be slow to anger and full of compassion for us. For those who have been abused, I pray that You will speak tenderly to them, bind their wounds, and let them experience Your perfect love for them. I pray for deep, deep healing for them, and a restoration of faith in the Father’s heart.
I pray that every obstacle, every barrier that has been erected between the hearts of Your children and the heart of their heavenly Father will be torn down. I pray for those who have left Your house and are returning to You in repentance, that they will find Your arms open wide to them.
Lord God, restore the hearts of the children to receive the love of their Father.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
