A Prayer for Fathers Day

God our Father, we give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old.

We pray for fathers newly embracing fatherhood, may they find courage and 
perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice

We pray for our own fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering: 


May they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow.

We pray for men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice

We remember fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish with their love.

Amen


Wishing you all a very happy and blessed Fathers Day!


Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story tellers, and singers of song.

That was a great father day prayer. Had a chance to see son yesterday and told him he was a good father. He takes exceptional care of his son. I think he had a good example being raised by his dad, my hubby.

Love this prayer! He's no longer living, but my own, ordinary father seemed bigger than life ... blessed memories.
