“Might their interest have had something to do with the jaw-dropping, eye-popping promises Jesus attached to prayer? ‘Ask and it will be given to you’ (Matt. 7:7, NIV). ‘If you believe, you will get anything you ask for in prayer’ (Matt. 21;22, NCV).”

Men, on this Father’s day, let us commit ourselves anew to praying for miraculous things to be done in our families, our marriages and all of our attempts to lead and love our children.
