Prayer for Fathers on Father's Day

Here’s a prayer of intercession for Father’s Day. It was posted on the Lourdes Prayer Request website.

Prayer for Fathers

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 our 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.
