Father's Day Memorials and Thanksgivings

Happy Father’s Day

Lord God, our Heavenly Father, we thank You this morning for our fathers, and for all fathers. We ask You to bless them and love them for the blessings and love they have given to us. For those fathers who are raising children, we pray that you would guide them, and give them wisdom and strength for the difficult role they have; show them, Lord, how to be the father You want them to be. You have told us, Lord, that we can call You “Father” and we pray for all those whose relationship with their father was imperfect or lacking, that You would be their Father – that You would make up for what we fathers sometimes have failed to do in our families. Lord bless this day and always bless the fathers, that they may be to us models of Your love and Fatherhood.
