The beginning of the week found us high up on a mountain, overlooking the city where we live. Along with a visiting friend and intercessor, we braved the wind to pray over the city and proclaim the Father’s truth in this place.

Parents and Elderly

Leviticus 18,19; Psalm 13; Acts 19

“Each of you must respect his mother and father, and you must observe my Sabbaths. I am the Lord your God…Rise in the presence of the aged. Show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord.” Leviticus 19:3, 32

God equates how we respect the elderly with how we honor him.
Why is that?
Respect and honor begin in our homes with the way we treat our parents. As we honor authority in our homes, we learn to honor God as our source of authority. The aged have lived life longer than us, they have something to teach us. This is an attitude of humility. God highly honors humility and respect for authority. The way we treat our parents even as they age, and the way we treat the elderly around us, speaks to the way we respond to God.

“Lord God, thank you for godly parents who love you and taught me the value of authority.”

“February is a busy month for Pastor Madou who will be spending time in various villages teaching a baptism class. Pray that he could make the basics of following Jesus clear and that those taking the class will put Jesus first in their lives. Also pray that the annual women’s seminar in Orodara which is happening this week will result in spiritual growth and encouragement for the participants. Finally, pray that Phil’s visits to area churches will result in finding some gifted people interested in learning to read Nanerige Scriptures in church.”
