A Father’s Day Prayer
Lord we ask you to bless our fathers. Guide them to be good role models and loving to all their children. Help them to be a father like you are.
We ask for your blessings for them all – and forgiveness where it is needed. On this Father’s Day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and their families, and the ways – both big and small – they lift children to achieve their dreams thought beyond reach.
For our fathers, we ask for wisdom and humility in the face of the task of parenting. May our Heavenly Father bless all earthly fathers today and every day. Give them grace and patience to handle situations in a loving way. Their influence as teachers and role models should never be underestimated. Grant that we, their sons and daughters, may honor them always with a spirit of profound love and respect.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
