A Prayer for Fathers

God the Father, by Cima da Conegliano, c. 1515,
The Courtauld Institute of Art, London. [PD-US]

On this day set aside to honor fathers,
We give thanks to God for the special men in our lives,
For our own fathers,
The fathers of our children,
And fathers within our
Extended families and communities.

Protect them, Lord, from harm,
Strengthen them in time of need,
And direct their steps that they
May always walk in holiness and grace.

Lord, we lift up those who mourn
The loss of their fathers
Or the fathers of their children.
May they find comfort in the promise
Of Eternal Life.
