Pray for the fathers of our children

Psalm 68 This verse: “and an advocate for widows” has always been a comfort for me when my Dad passed away. I knew then that God would always be there for my Mother and He proved Himself true. For many years she was a widow but remained strong and always involved in ministry. What a praise that is! 

Secondly,this part of that same verse: “He is a father to the fatherless” is also a comfort. When we are “parentless” we find great comfort knowing that God is our Father. The Apostle John wrote the words of Jesus: “go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.” [Jn 20:17] This was the first time Jesus said “your Father.” We now have that blessing. God is “our” Father and He is a father to the fatherless as the psalmist wrote.

So if you are a widow or you are parentless, you can trust that Jesus will always be there for you in any situation. Do you know Him? Remember an advocate stands in place of us. Jesus is our advocate before the Father and the Holy Spirit is our advocate revealing truth to us that we may not sin.
