To The Fathers:
F. – First to speak life over your children. Speak words of success, prosperity, faith, peace, and love. Do not be silent and allow the world around them to speak “death” into their lives. You are the cultivator of the seeds you planted inside of them.
A.- Antidote for corrupted communities. We look to you stand guard against violence, drugs, and evil corruption sought to destroy our neighborhoods. You are the voice to the youth in guiding them down the right path. Do not abandon your post and leave us uncovered.
T.- Teacher of true manhood to sons. You are the example of what a man should be. You are the stencil by which others should copy your standards and draw from your wisdom. Do not mishandle your mantle so our boys will not suffer.
H.- Hero of the hearts of daughters. You are the man that she should admire. Teach her what respect looks like and guide her away from mischievous guys. Broken homes and shattered hearts will be the results of your absence and neglectful actions.
E.- Equipped to lead in the home. God placed you as the head so you can be the standard in the home. Be the standard of godliness, integrity, and good success. Do not step outside of the position God stationed you to be because dysfunction will reign if you leave.
R.- Ready to stand in the gap in places where men are absent. We know there are men that have abandoned their positions but you must be the one that call them all back home. Hold them accountable for allowing society’s statistics to replace themselves within the home. We look to you to be the example when some only have a shadow. You are the father that challenges the status quo of “fatherless homes”. Never forget that you are needed.
