21 Days to Father's Day

I cannot stop praying for the men and fathers of NPM.
I have been praying several things from 1 Peter.
The following list has come from my "power phrases" over the last few weeks.
I pray that the men and fathers would know...
  1. They are elected and chosen by God to obey. 1.1-2
  2. Inexpressible and glorious joy. 1.8
  3. There is suffering now with glory to follow. 1.11
  4. We do not serve ourselves but the generations to come.1.12
  5. To prepare our minds for action. 1.13-14
  6. We call on a Father in heaven.1.17
  7. That our Father is our Judge. 1.17
  8. To live as strangers on the earth. 1.17
  9. We have been redeemed from the empty way of life.1.18
  10. We have been purified to love.1.22
  11. We are all like grass that withers away. 1.24-25
  12. To rid ourselves of all malice and deceit. 2.1-3
