PRAYER ALERT: Restored Churches Grow Mature Amid Trials
Broken families—with absentee fathers—are the main sources for crime, teenage pregnancy, and homosexuality. But Malachi 4:5-6 promises that God will give grace to restore hearts of fathers to children, and hearts of children to fathers. Or else He will strike their land with a curse.

For those who receive this grace, God will spare them from His curses. In the same way, He spared the Israelites from His plagues on Egypt. Together, the families of Israel lived in Goshen. The more that today’s families pray together and stay together, the more He will heal their land, and make it a protected Goshen in the midst of destruction (see 2 Chron. 7:14; Rev. 12:6).
Restored families will gather with other restored families in restored churches built on trust. But unrestored families and churches will fall to betrayal. “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child…” (Mt. 10:21).
How will you and your family fare when more plagues come? It depends on how your respond when God’s grace comes. So pray for that grace. Seek that grace. And receive that grace when it ccomes. The grace that you receive—and give—will make a huge difference in how you, your family, your church and your locality live through the challenging times ahead.
