Yesterday we prayed for husbands who will be fathers that express storge in form of affection.Today we are focusing on expression of storge in form of mentoring.
A home is somewhere children are trained,groomed and prepared for life.Parents have a big role in mentoring their children.A mentor is a person who gives an example of Christlikeness.So the environment created at home is to encourage children to give their lives to Christ.|“Didn’t God create you and your wife to become like one person? And why did he do this? It was so you would have children, and then lead them to become God’s people. Don’t ever be unfaithful to your wife.”Malachi 2:15|
It is at home that talents and gifts are to be discovered and celebrated and a child’s potential is realized.Pray that you and your fh/husband may be able to encourage your children in their gifts and talents.Pray that they may feel free to be who they are in the image of God.May you be able to mentor them to become the best they can be in life.Some parents compare their children and show favour towards one,this is a recipe for disaster.Pray that you may love,respect and celebrate your children’s differences.
Pray that you and your spouse may be able to balance discipline and love toward your children.May he be a good leader of your family as the head and may your children obey him with respect.|“He must be a good leader of his own family. This means that his children obey him with full respect. If a man does not know how to lead his own family, he will not be able to take care of God’s church.”1 Timothy 3:4-5 ERV|
Pray that your husband may be able to lead your family spiritually in bringing up your children.May he be able to guide them and lead them in Agape love.|“Fathers, don’t exasperate your children by coming down hard on them. Take them by the hand and lead them in the way of the Master.”Ephesians 6:4 MSG|
It is at home that girls are taught how to be ladies and boys are taught to be men.Pray that you and your fh/husband may be able to train your them.Pray that your husband may take the role as the father to show his sons how to be princes and show his daughters how they are supposed to be treated as princesses.May he also be able to treat you with respect like a queen and as a fellow-heirs in the new life in Christ.|“In the same way you husbands must live with your wives with the proper understanding that they are more delicate than you. Treat them with respect, because they also will receive, together with you, God’s gift of life. Do this so that nothing will interfere with your prayers.”1 Peter 3:7 GNT|
Some people may not have experienced storge love physically in their family but remember God sets up the lonely in families.|“You find families for those who are lonely. You set prisoners free and let them prosper…Psalms 68:6| The church fulfills the need of people that missed physical family and they can get storge from the spiritual family in Christ.We are family in Christ Jesus.There are fathers and mothers,brothers and sisters.|Titus 2.2-8|The believers can feel up this gap in your life and you feel fulfilled just like you had a physical family.|“Do not rebuke an older man, but appeal to him as if he were your father.Treat the younger men as your brothers, the older women as mothers, and the younger women as sisters, with all purity.”1 Timothy 5:1-2 GNT|
So pray that if you or your husband did not have a physical family expressing storge,may God set you up in a family with believers who will storge love you.
