“And He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers…”
I been witnessing this very thing happen in Cairo over the past week. We have been asking for it for several years, but now are starting to see the fruit. At our prayer tent last Thursday out at the park – durnig the community cookout we were pleasantly surprised to have chilren join us. Jesus welcomes the children into His arms. When these children were asked how we could pray for them, many of them requested us to pray for their fathers. Fathers who are in jail, fathers who are distant, fathers who are abusive, fathers who need Jesus. These children were asking that their fathers would turn to God and be forgiven of their sin. Children as young as five years old were asking us to pray this over their dads. Powerful. The prayers of a child…powerful…the Lord hears…the Lord will move. Children were comforting one another and praying over each other. I was blown away. This is the generation the Lord is raising up. Thank you Jesus for revealing your kindness to me through your children.
Recently a friend of ours in the community has told us about the father of her children coming back into their lives. He told her he couldn’t sleep because he couldn’t stop thinking about his children and wanting to spend time with them. God is also turning the hearts of the fathers back to their children. Thank you Jesus. We ask for more fathers to have this desire.
