Ephesians 6;4,10-13  (NRSV)

And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

2. Pray God will equip Christian students with the full armor of God, infuse them with courage to contend ably & boldly for the faith when they encounter attacks on all that is holy and good.

3. Pray fathers will lead their families daily in worship & prayer.

“So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions you were taught. . .”  2 Thessalonians 2:15 (ESV)
