One of Jonathan Edwards’ Last Prayers

Lucy Edwards, one of Jonathan’s children was with him as he lay dying of a fever he contracted from a small-pox inoculation shortly before.  She heard him say:

As to my children, you are now to be left fatherless, which I hope will be an inducement to you all to seek a Father who will never fail you.

Do we as fathers live a life that would induce our children to seek The Heavenly Father who will not fail them like we do?
