What are you prayers for your children? Do you pray for their future? If not, it’s time to start! I pray that generational curses would be broken over our children. That they may live whole and abundantly according to God’s blessings for their lives! That they would know who they are in God’s eyes—their Heavenly Father, regardless of whom did or did not raise them here on Earth.
This poem is a message to fathers who have chosen to not be present in their children’s lives. To mothers who don’t know how to protect your children from such pain. & To little girls and women who may have grown up feeling neglected or unloved by a father.
