Recently, my wife and I watched Ragamuffin, a movie about the life of Rich Mullins, a musical prodigy, and the difficult relationship he had with his verbally and emotionally abusive father. It reminded us of another movie, I Can Only Imagine, about the life of singer, Bart Millard, and the difficulties he too had with his father, who physically abused him.
A prayer for you to pray– “Lord God, I pray for the readers that are angry toward their dad. The things their father has done has caused great pain and division. Enable them to forgive, to release their father to you. To accept and love him just as he is. Do for them, what they cannot do for themselves. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
