More Father's Day Prayers

God our Father,
we give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old.

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation;
may they find courage and perseverance
to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice.

We pray for fathers around the world
whose children are lost or suffering;
may they know that the God of compassion
walks with them in their sorrow.

We pray for men who are not fathers
but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice.

We remember fathers, grandfather, and great grandfathers
who are no longer with us
but who live forever in our memory
and nourish us with their love. Amen

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 be and become
the loving, caring persons they are meant to be.

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
