Happy Father’s Day

June 16, 2019

Fatherhood calls for many challenges and hardships, which every dad bears with pride and happiness. Your dad has been your first friend who has always been with you, no matter what. He is the one person who has bestowed you with unconditional love and care, without asking for anything in return. When it comes to the relationship you share with your father, there are absolutely no strings attached. He may not show, but he is always there for you, with his unwavering support and assistance.

How often do you take out time to whisper a silent prayer to God for the health and happiness of this special person in your life? Most of you would prefer not to answer the above question. This Father’s Day, take it as an opportunity to seek blessings for your father, with a special prayer of gratitude. In the following lines, we have listed a few prayers which would rightly convey all what you wish for your dad.

My husband, my daughter’s father, my one and only natural birth child, Courtney. Has one of the best fathers a child could ever hope for. He is committed, he is mild mannered, and probably has never disciplined her when she was younger., even if she deserved it. But he does let you know when he is unhappy with a situation. He never raises his voice at his daughter, unlike I do, but when she needs it, I give it to her. Paul is a great man for many reasons. He has always respected Courtney, and could be trusted not to violate her innocence. That alone holds great weight with me. I call him honorable, I call him trustworthy, I call him loyal and I call him husband.

Special Prayers for Dad

Prayer 1
God our Father,
in your wisdom and love you made all things.
Bless those fathers, who have taken upon themselves
the responsibility of parenting.
Bless those who have lost a spouse to death … or divorce
who are parenting their children alone.
Strengthen them by your love that they may become
the loving, caring persons they are meant to be.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
Amen!

Prayer 2

Guide them to be good role models
and loving to all their children.

Give them grace and patience
to handle situations in a loving way.

Prayer 3
Fathers everywhere,
We honor you and wish to say
May God’s blessings be with you
May God’s blessings be with you
In a special way today!

Prayer 4
Lord, please take care of our dads.
Though they are brave and protective,
they must also be frightened sometimes.
When money runs low and when we need things,
Lord, when their hearts break because they can’t do it all;
Please help us to let them know how much we love them.
And how much You love them.
Amen!

Prayer 5
Lord, I Thank you for my dad
Please take care of him
He is getting older,
but he is still brave and bold
Please take care of him
Amen!

Prayer 6
Thank you, friend Jesus,
for my father who loves me,
for my grandfather who cares for me
and for God, my eternal father,
who made me and is always with me.
How Blessed I am!
Amen!

Prayer 7
God our Father
Bless these men,
that they may find strength as fathers.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
may honor them always
with a spirit of profound respect.
Amen!

Encourage Yourself In the Lord

To all you Great fathers, Happy Father’s day! God bless you in all you do. Protecting and providing for your precious little babies, no matter how old they are. Even though the bigger children shy away from the affection as they get older. Thank you!

With much love from Joy, Courtney, & Anita
