PRAYER OF BLESSING FOR FATHERS

OUR MOST LOVING FATHER IN HEAVEN,

WE THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT OF OUR EARTHLY FATHERS, GRANDFATHERS AND THOSE WHO BECAME FATHERS TO US IN MANY WAYS.

WE ASK YOU TO BLESS + THE FATHERS IN EVERY HOME AND IN EVERY COMMUNITY.

THROUGH YOUR WISDOM, GRANT TO THEM THE GIFT OF UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY TOO MAY BECOME COMPASSIONATE TO THEIR CHILDREN.

THROUGH YOUR LOVE, GRANT TO THEM THE GIFT OF A GENTLE HEART AND LET THEM ALWAYS BECOME CONFIDENT THAT THEY ARE LOVED BY YOU AND BY THOSE PEOPLE AROUND THEM.

THROUGH YOUR MIGHT OH LORD, GRANT TO THEM THE STRENGHT THEY NEED AS THEY WORK AND SUPPORT THEIR FAMILIES. AFFIRM THEM TOO OF THEIR VALUE AND THAT THEY MAY BE CHERISHED BY THEIR LOVED ONES.

THROUGH YOUR CARE, GRANT ALSO THE GIFT OF HEALING TO THOSE FATHERS WHO ARE ILL, WHO ARE IN PAIN, TROUBLED AND DEPRESSED BECAUSE OF THE HARDSHIPS THEY FACE.

AND FOR THOSE FATHERS WHO ARE NOW GONE FROM THIS EARTH, RECEIVE THEM ALL IN HEAVEN THAT THEY TOO MAY EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF YOUR PRESENCE WHERE THEY ARE SECURED IN LOVE AND ETERNAL HAPPINESS.

GRANT THIS THROUGH CHRIST OUR LORD. AMEN.
