Prayer

Father and Mother

And you saw how the LORD your God cared for you all along the way as you travelled through the wilderness, just as a father cares for his child (Deuteronomy 1:31; NLT).

The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him (Psalm 103:13; NLT).

“I will comfort you there in Jerusalem as a mother comforts her child” (Isaiah 66:13; NLT).

“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me” (Luke 13:34; NLT).


Almighty and everlasting God,
Thank you for being
Our Father and our Mother –
Tender,
Compassionate,
Caring,
Protective,
And comforting.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
