June 16th - Fathers day prayer

Our first teachers are our parents.  On this special day let us pray for them.

We give thanks and praise to fathers young and old.

We pray for young fathers newly embracing their fatherhood.  May they find courage and perseverance to balance, work, family and faith.

We pray for 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 with fatherly love and advice.

We remember fathers, grand fathers and great grandfathers who are no longer with us, but who live forever in our memories.


Wishing all fathers a very Happy Fathers Day today and everyday, its a job that never ends.

Love and hugs,


Making the decision to have a child is momentous .  It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
