A Great Prayer for a Dad

Tonight I remember Psalm 112 and what a great prayer it is for fathers!

If you haven’t already, pray for dads that they would fear the Lord, take great delight in His commands, and have mighty and blessed children. This psalm also talks about the blessings of wealth and riches, light in darkness, unshakable lives, secure hearts, no fear of bad news, and triumph in all situations.

It’s a great psalm of blessing to pray every day.

    the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
