Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.

(Exodus 20:12)

When I was a teenager I remember walking out of my home, with a rebellious heart, and a haughty attitude, pushing everyone to the side, wanting to do my own thing. My mother stood in my way, blocking me from leaving. Without a thought, I uttered words, that pierced my mothers heart.

It was a cuss word. I felt justified to say it, but it was clearly disrespectful, and ignorant. I should have not lashed out at her, but bring my hurt to the LORD. I did not know what to do, or how to react, so I acted out in ignorance, without thinking about the consequences of my actions. No matter what, we must not disrespect our parents, or speak any evil against them, because the blessing of God, and curse of the enemy, lies within our actions.

I am praying for respect, and honor towards parents and guardians. Praying for a thirst, and hunger to ARISE within the hearts, to pursue the Righteousness of God. Knowledge is POWER, once you know better, you do better. Fools act out in ignorance without thinking about their actions. Praying for God to soften hearts, and open eyes, to see wrong acts, and behaviors. Praying for repentance of hearts, to turn from wicked ways.

The blessing of God, lies in respect, and honor we give to our guardians, and parents.


Heavenly Father, 

Thank you for your MERCIES that are available to us every morning, thank you for your GRACE that is extended to us our every waking moment. We don’t deserve your GRACE, yet you cover us. We don’t deserve your MERCY, yet you shower us. How amazing are you LORD! Great is your faithfulness!

Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness beyond the clouds. We exalt you, and your name up high, higher than the heavens, wider than the oceans, deeper than the depths below. At the name of JESUS, every knee shall bow, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord

We have walked away from your RIGHTEOUSNESS, and have disregarded your HOLINESS, forgive us LORD! Cover our transgressions, and wash over our faults. Pour out your compassion, extend your hand of mercy, and cover us with your GRACE. Incline your ear to our cry, bind up the broken areas of our lives, and begin to restore our broken world.

Cleanse us with the blood that flows from Calvary, wash over our land, renew principles, and teachings in our hearts TODAY. Remove our opinions, and ideas, and prepare our hearts, to receive your truth. 

We ask that you OPEN our eyes to see, and hearts to RECEIVE your truth! Convict hearts, to repent of evil ways, starting with the authority of this nation, to our homes; taking responsibility, and showing accountability, for our actions. No longer will our nation be scattered and miss-guided, no longer will our families be divided, but be UNITED in one spirit, and one accord. 

We ask that you re-ignite our desires to honor, and respect our guardians, and those who raised us, by showing them honor, and respect. Father teach us, to train our children, in the way of Righteousness, starting with our homes, and our families. We ask that repentance takes place, to turn from our wicked ways, and begin to Honor you GOD. Soften our hearts with forgiveness, melt away the hurt. Let your fresh anointing sweep over this nation, and wake up hearts of people to serve you

For you alone, and you alone deserve the glory, honor, and praise.

Spirit of BOLDNESS rise up in us, and the FEAR of GOD rise up in our hearts. Let us honor you, respect you, and reverence you, in every detail of our lives, above all else. We thank you, for what you are doing, in our land and beyond, on the power and authority of Jesus Christ of NAZARETH, AMEN! 

If you have been blessed by PRAYER DELIGHTS, bless someone else, by sharing this post.
