Summer seems an appropriate time to celebrate fathers. Maybe it is the warmth or activity. It just seems to fit.
Something else that seems to fit in with a celebration of fathers is prayer. What better way to thank a Christian father than to imitate him and his prayer life?
In the past several weeks, the prayer times here at Herald and Banner have seen lists of requests. It is easy to get lost in the overwhelming needs of those around us. So many people are hurting!
Yet when we come together for prayer, we have a comfort and a hope. God — THE Father — knows, hears, loves, and acts.
