Respect for self, others and authority:
“Father, grant that my children would show proper respect for everything and everyone, as your Word commands.”
Myself and Others
“Father, I pray that I and ________ would show proper respect for everything and everyone, as your Word commands.”
Respect everyone, and love your Christian brothers and sisters. Fear God, and respect the king. 1 Peter 2:17
Respect (timaō) – To honor, to revere, to admire
Love (agapaō) – to wish well, to have a preference for, to regard the well fare for
How different would our world would be if this was how we treated each other? With honor and admiration. Wishing well. With preference and regard.
What an opportunity we have to pray for and teach this rising generation how to love well. Even if you don’t have children of your own, will you take a moment and pray for someone specifically? Call them by name.
One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. Psalm 145:4
Good words! I don't think respect is taught enough! I know I haven't done well in teaching it to my kids. This is encouraging!
