The disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. When He replied to their request He said:
‘Father …’ Luke 11:2
Today your are invited to consider who God the Father is to you. Is He your Father? Is the concept of God being your Father difficult for you? How has the relationship with your own father influenced your relationship with God the Father? How does it influence your relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit? Tell God about your father – who he was to you, how you feel about him. Be as open as you can be. Ask God to surround that relationship with His love for you to heal or shine, to comfort or celebrate.
Whatever your relationship with your own father is or was, may God bless you with His touch on that relationship today that it may be filled with peace and healing, joy and celebration.
