Prayer for the Fathers in Our Lives
Fatherhood does not come with a manual, and reality teaches us that some fathers excel while others fail.
We ask for Your blessings for them all and forgiveness where it is needed.
This Father's Day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and families,
and the ways--both big and small--they lift children to achieve dreams thought beyond reach.
So too, we remember all those who have helped fill the void when fathers pass early or are absent
grandfathers and uncles, brothers and cousins, teachers, pastors and coaches and the women
of our families.
For those who are fathers, we ask for wisdom and humility in the face of the task of parenting.
Give them the strength to do well by their children and by You.
In Your Holy name, O God, we pray. Amen.
Rev. Chuck Currie
