I Pray...One Day At A Time Photobucket

There seems to be more women now at church than men

Trying to stand in the gap for loved ones and their children

Dear Lord above_ Why has it changed for them?

 God's word says the leader of the home should be the men


 For a time such as this You are raising up women

 I wonder if it's because your voice they're hearing

Your word says a 3 fold cord is not easily broken

 Oh what power a couple possess when together your word is spoken


Yet many men these days sit on the side line

While more women tend to your word at this time

 I pray for strength and anointing to now be given

One day at a time for your obedient women


 Father I'd much rather the anointing be for both

But it seems more and more mens hearts are waxing cold

It's so sad to see in these last days and age

Women carrying all the burden more every day


 My heart hurts to see the absence and lack of unity

Of parents spiritually growing together with their family

 So many times men want to do their own thing

Their hobbies and fishing leaving women to parenting


A real man does cry and is a humble man of God

 His heart is steadfast on the enemy to trod

He protects his family by daily being in prayer

Side by each with his wife he is always there


Occassionally the man has to play both roles

 Some women refusing salvation for their souls

Whatever the case may be I do humbly pray

One day at a time Lord Jesus to strengthen the family

1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

1 Timothy 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

 Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
