For Fathers


On Father's Day

Today, heavenly Father, we pray for fathers on earth. 

For the fathers who have loved and provided for us – we thank you for them.  For their kindness
Generosity
Service
Strength
Leadership
Friendship
Love  

For those fathers who have struggled in their role, we pray for them and for healing relationships with their children.  

For those amongst us who are fathers,
                We pray that you will help them to be godly and upright men    
                Who lead their households in faith and love       
                And that they will bring their children up in the training and instruction of the Lord. 

Lord, we pray for those amongst us who would like to be fathers, but are not – Lord, comfort them in their grief and sustain them daily.

Lord, for those for whom today is a day of grief, either over the loss of a father, or the pain of a poor relationship – give them comfort Lord.  Help them to know that you are their Heavenly Father that provides all they need and who loves them totally and completely.

Thank you for the gift of relationships Father, and especially today, for fathers.

Amen
