THEME: OBEY YOUR PARENTS
“Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy the truth and do not sell it— wisdom, instruction and insight as well. The father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him. May your father and mother rejoice; may she who gave you birth be joyful!”
-Old age is associated with wisdom, understanding, knowledge and insights due to diverse experiences in life and better still; when one is inclined to the will of God. Although some despise their parents when they grow old and tend to ignore their advise. It is important to realize that parents always seek the best of their children and always instruct them in wisdom lest they go astray. Through their experiences, parents correct, inspire and direct their children so that they may not encounter adversities that they did in their course of life. When children follow the will of God, their parents rejoice and remain at rest having accomplished one great mission of raising up responsible men and women. Samuel was obedient to his parents from his youth and when it came time for him to become a priest, he was obedient and served the Lord diligently to the end.
Give us Your wisdom Lord so that we may know Your ways and look to You alone. Guide us in Your counsel and in the path of the righteousness for Your righteousness endures forever. Help us to always delight in Your law Lord and to meditate on it day and night. Plant us like trees by the rivers of water, that we may bring forth fruit in its season and our leaves may remain green in all seasons. Help us to prosper in all that we do like You prospered Isaac at Beersheba. Grant us social, economic, political, relational and spiritual stability so that we may experience Your divine favor in all things. Remember those children who have gone astray and indulge in evil vices that do not please You Lord, that You may counsel them and renew their minds. Be with all the orphans and those who have been rejected by their parents and are wondering in the streets; that You may heal their wounds and give them Your grace for You are our Father. Forgive us all our sins dear Jesus and cover us with Your precious blood. Our Father who at in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen
