Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.”
-We all know that covenants have conditions, promises & privileges. The law of honoring parents has promised us long life & well-being which could refer to good health, peace, happy family, blessings, prosperity, success etc. We need to make covenants of obedience, respect & love with our parents so that may partake of these benefits. Jesus Himself was obedient to His earthly parents & His Father in heaven even suffering unto death (Heb 5:8). This law of honoring parents also refers to obedience to God the Father as we are His children & joint heirs with Christ (Rom 8:17). To another extent respect for elders & those in authority which is also key. Giving honor requires an attitude of humility & obedience given to us through the grace of God, that we remain sustained in His promises. Obedience also brings about a dimension of discipline & a sense of responsibility that we stay on course for the cause.
Help us Lord we humbly implore You that we may be reunited with our parents always in reconciliation of love, peace & joy. We thank You for loving us with unconditional love. Strengthen our love for You & our parents with bonds that cannot be broken. Give us wisdom that we may always make our parents proud & bring joy in their lives. We call forth Your blessings of wellness of body, spiritual growth, prosperity in work & business, success in marriage, fruitfulness of land, long life & many others blessings that You have purposed for us, loving Father. We give You all the glory, honor & praise now & forever. Amen
