Our country began with a revolution.
A revolution is what is needed now.
Not a revolution that overthrows a government, but a personal revolution.
If a man has not discovered something he will die for, he isn’t fit to live”
Martin Luther King
I want to begin this 40 day journey of prayer with a question for my brothers, for any man who might be reading this.
What are you willing to give your life for?
Are you willing to lay down personal ambition, need for recreation, your pride, your entitlement?
Are you willing to go against the grain of culture to take a stand for what is right, lead instead of follow?
Are you willing to do these things and more, to lead your family by example, take an active role for good in your community in your church?
Are you willing to stand the post that God has called you to?
In Malachi 4 God gives us an amazing promise that in the last days He would cause the hearts of the father’s to be turned to the children.
“He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents”
We see in this the promise that as God’s heart is turned to us, our hearts turn to Him. We pass this on to our children and hopefully the cycle repeats itself.
But we must hear the warning, the consequences of rejecting this generous offer.
“I will come and strike the land with total destruction.” – Malachi 4:6
We are witnesses to the destruction that is afflicting our nation..
As men we have failed to stand our post as fathers and husbands.
Because of our hardness of heart towards God, our father ..
This is where we began our 40 day journey.
With a revolution.
With a call for men, grandfathers, fathers, husbands to allow their hearts to be touched by God, to accept as a gift what it is hard for us to give.
A Father’s love.
That we might pass it on…
This is where we begin.
Father we ask for your forgiveness and for your help.
Forgiveness because we have failed in our responsibility to love and lead our families.
We ask that You would grant us repentance. Change our hearts and our direction
Help us to become what You are calling us to be
Help us to love and lead with our Father’s heart.
