The Fatherhood of God

Jill Briscoe

“Pray for me.” People who normally pay no attention to God can be heard asking for prayer when they find themselves in trouble or at their wit’s end with some life circumstance. However, ask a dozen people to whom they are praying, and you’ll get a dozen different answers! Prayer has become a pleasant catch phrase for people of all faiths or no faith at all! However, the Bible is clear—our prayers should be offered to God, the Father. Jesus set the example in His own devotional life, and He taught the disciples to begin their own prayers with, “Our Father.”

So ask yourself, how do you pray and to whom? Do you wrestle with the idea of God as a father because your earthly parent was absent or let you down in some way? Then, Jill’s study, which is based on the Lord’s Prayer, may give you a fresh perspective and a renewed love for your heavenly Father.

A bewildered human race is like a man lost in a forest asking, “Father, are you there?” In 1945, at the end of World War 2, Helmut Thielicke, a brilliant theologian, preaching through the Lord’s Prayer to what was left of his congregation in the ruins of his church in Stuttgart said, “Everything will be all right so long as we hear His good voice calling to us above the howling of the wolves, above the sound of branches snapping, above the ominous noises around us. God is always there.”

A Christian worldview believes in the Fatherhood of God.

Scripture: Luke 11:1-11:5

God came in Christ to offer us forgiveness through the cross. He rose again the third day and set about bringing the world back home. “Talk to me,” says the Father. “Prayer is the means; I have made a way.” But there is a problem—we don’t know how.
