With Father’s Day coming up, the song “Lead Me“, by Sanctus Real, has been on my heart.
The song has reminded me of the huge responsibility and honor of being a Husband and Father. And though I am not either one right now, I truly desire to be both someday. And being the Husband and Father God has called me (us) to be doesn’t start when those vows are exchanged, or that first baby is delivered…it starts for me right now; today.
So this is my prayer; for myself, and for all of you men.
Lord lead me.
Lead me to become the leader that trusts in you always.
Lead me to make the right decisions now, and to put my family (even my future family) first.
Lead me to be the provider that my family will need, but to never put work over them.
Lead me to lead with a strong hand. And to stand up for my family when they can’t.
Lead me to the work you have for me.
Lead me to love others like you.
Lead me to be a man after your heart.
Lead me to be a man of God
Lead me to lead.
Lord, lead me.
A man that needs You Lord
