Bless all the fathers in the world who have accepted the responsibilities of being a parent. Guide them to be outstanding role models to their children. Let them look to your example and to parent with patience, unconditional love and understanding.
For those soon to be fathers. May you light the path that is before him to be a good father to his child. Give him strength and patience to be a good father and to raise his children according to your teachings.
For those who have lost children, or lost their own fathers recently. Bless those who mourn and comfort those who are hurting. Give them the strength to take one day at a time, one moment at a time, and one step forward at a time.
For those who long to be fathers or have fathers who are sick. Bring hope to troubled hearts and graciously grant them peace. Comfort those fathers who are ill. Watch over them when they cannot sleep, speak your love to them when they are afraid, touch and heal their weak bodies.
Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
