Father's Day Prayer (by Richard Fairchhild)
Thank God for how he loves us
how he sets the example of parenthood
We also thank you God today for our parents
- especially for our fathers -
We pray that whether they are here with us still - or with you -
that you might bless them
that you would forgive - as we forgive - any failings that they
may have had or still have
that you might bring to yourself and hallow all the good they did
and lead them in righteousness with cords of human kindness and
ties of love now and forevermore. Amen.
