respect authority Some sponsored children live in places with many bad examples around them of disrespectful and disobedient youth. Pray that your sponsored child would learn to respect their authorities.

“Father, grant that my children may show proper respect to everyone, as Your Word commands.”

“Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.” –1 Peter 2:17, NASB

    1 Peter 2:17
    Amplified Bible (AMP)

    17 Show respect for all men [treat them honorably]. Love the brotherhood (the Christian fraternity of which Christ is the Head). Reverence God. Honor the emperor.

    Great verse, I didn’t even know it was in the bible!

    I pray every single day for Acopa Rebeccal. After seeing Wally at I cannot imagine having to carry wter for so far. My child is near where he was with the Water people making a well close to her home. I pray to the Lord God Almighty that if her family is not close to the well, that someone will come and create a well for her people.
