A Father’s Day Prayer

A Prayer for Fathers on this Father’s Day.

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

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation; may they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice.

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

We pray for those who did not have the blessing of a good father and caring presence, that the community may support them in ways that bring healing and growth.
