Father's Day Blessing
Well, we all know how important mothers are to the well-being of a family. Fathers are as important as mothers are, but offer a different perspective on life and bring a much needed role in bringing up children. Let us welcome all fathers today and acknowledge how important they have been, and continue to be in our lives.
Let us pray...
Gracious God and Father, our first father,
You are the One who has brought us to life in this world you created.
You created us and everything around us.
We turned away from you
and only after disappointing you did we return your love.
Look with favor on our earthly fathers.
They helped create us in your image.
We have disappointed them,
but have come to realize just how important they are to us.
Bless all our fathers, living and deceased, with comfort and health.
We bring all their needs to you
and ask for strength so they may live worthy lives.
We ask all this in the name of your Son,
our model of what it means to reverence our fathers.
In Christ's name.
