Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of David.

Ruth 4:22

The Book of Ruth begins with Naomi and ends with David the king. In the New Testament the first chapter mentions Ruth, and the birth-line reaches the Christ. The heritage passed on from godly parents to a child is rich in potential. Pray for family care while the enemy works to destroy family bonds, and for families in the care of churches.
