Years ago, when I was younger and dumber, a brother-in-law of my father tried to sell me life insurance. He found me at a thin moment in my life, and the entire sales pitch ended abruptly when I told him I didn’t have any money for life insurance. When he countered my sales resistance with the question, “Don’t you love your family?”, my response had him running for his car. I doubt if either of us ever forgot the unfortunate encounter, but I remembered it early this morning, and after fifty years, I’ve learned a new appreciation of the question: Fathers, if you love your families, you’ll build them up by prepping with prayer.
Here’s my take on it: When Christians pray to the eternal God, we in essence, entrust Him with our prayers. Our prayers to Him are an offering, and if we pray within His will and at His direction, those prayers become eternal when He receives them. Upon receipt, those prayers don’t belong to us anymore – they are His property.
I think of it as packing a closet full of prepping supplies, but instead of water bottles and dried food, the closet is packed full of prayers, and I’m entrusting God to unpack them as they are needed.
I may not be around for my family in the times ahead, but my prayers will be. As I entrust my family to God, as the father of my family, I’m conscious of praying my fatherly prayers to the eternal Father…He knows all about fatherhood. I pray to Him father-to-Father, and I know that He Who stores all my tears in a bottle, keeps and safeguards my prayers as well.
I actually have some meager supplies on hand just in case the electricity goes out or riots disrupt our domestic tranquility, both of which may be just over the horizon, but my truly valuable prepping is the sheer volume of prayers I’m placing in storage. I want God to lead and protect and provide for my family, and I want Him to do it generationally. I’m not rich in money, and may never be, but I can be wealthy in prayer…it is my fatherly legacy.
God is the great record keeper. There are numerous references in scripture to His “books”, and there are probably too many to count. He never forgets, unless He wills to, and He’s always faithful, even when we falter. I’m absolutely positive I wouldn’t be a Christian man today unless someone, maybe multiple someones prayed for me…and as a father, all I’m doing is returning the favor forward.
Taking care of their families is what fathers do. It is their God-ordained responsibility. With that in mind, I’m prepping as much as I can while I still can – I’m stuffing the closets in heaven full of my prayers.
That’s real “life insurance”, and it can’t be bought with money. The love of God made it available; our love of God makes it ours. It is a father’s legacy.
