Reading and Prayer

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Prayer:

Dear Lord,
In You we have life. You are light and you are love. In this, Christian families week, I pray for husbands. I pray that by the power of the Holy Spirit, they may show unending love to their families. May they treasure their wives and find unceasing joy in their children. May they serve their families in such a way that they love of Christ is recognized in their words and deeds. May You give them strength, wisdom and discernment. In the messiness of life, I pray that they may lean on You. Bless the husbands Lord, and give them all that they need to serve their families well.
In Jesus Christ I pray,
Amen
