To intercede means to intervene on behalf of another. There are those who need a helping hand in fulfilling their divine purpose. They seek individuals who can go above and beyond to guide them toward becoming the best version of themselves. It’s important to prioritize our responsibilities and take the time to aid struggling fathers. Some dads are absent due to circumstances beyond their control, such as incarceration or neglecting their duties as a parent. Will you be the one to step up and stand in the gap for these dads and the children affected by their absence? By being a positive role model and leading these children toward their Heavenly Father, you have the ability to make a significant impact on their lives.
Imagine a world where fathers are present and accountable for their children. Men step up to fill the void, speaking with love and truth to those who have lost their way. A world where transformation is possible, where deadbeat dads become dependable fathers through the power of Jesus. Let’s work together to create a society where husbands, children, and the world at large benefit from responsible and caring fathers.
Firstly, let’s be the dads who turn to God knowing and trusting that in and through Him justice runs down like water. Secondly, let’s be the dads who turn to God because we know in and through Him righteousness flows abundantly. Finally, let’s be the dads God needs us to be for the good of our wives, kids, and world and for His glory and intercede!
How can we apply today’s verse of the day towards being the dads who intercede not only for our wives, kids, and world but also for kids without dads and dads who have been separated from their kids either by choice or bad decision?
Applications of Amos 5:24 toward being able to intercede for the glory of God:

Your efforts can contribute to the establishment of a more just and righteous world, both for your loved ones and for those who are marginalized or facing difficult circumstances.
