Fathers day is a time to appreciate the father figure in our lives. This prayer was written by an anonymous author and it is thought to be one of the most beautiful prayers for father’s day.
We thank you for all that you have done;
For your care and guiding hand through all our life.
You know what we need before we ask:
Your wisdom, power and love are always near.
Father, teach us how to honor you today:
Forgive our shortcomings and help others too.
May we show love through deeds and kindness too;
In Jesus’ name, amen.
This father’s day prayer was written by a woman who is also the mother of ten children – she experienced all types of fatherhood with her late husband. This father’s day prayer is a perfect way to show the men in your life how much they mean to you, and it will be an eternal gift for them too – one that will never wear out or break down.
Dear Heavenly Father, please bless all the fathers in this world who have accepted their responsibilities to be a parent.
As they are looking up to you as an example of how someone should behave towards children and family life, guide them so that they can be outstanding role models for future generations.
Let it not just come from words but also actions; may patience, unconditional love and understanding flow through these well-deserving individuals. Amen
Dear God! Bless every father (and mother) on Earth who has taken responsibility for raising his/her child with patience & kindness!!
Guide them always remind themselves what your teachings were about being good parents by giving guidance both verbally AND nonverbally like teaching kids manners or showing empathy when a friend is hurt even if he/she wasn’t the one who hurt him/her.
Help them never lose their sense of humor in parenting and make sure they know how to scream at a child when it’s necessary for discipline! Thank you, Jesus Christ, Amen
The father is an important figure in any family unit; he has many roles – emotional support, mentor, breadwinner. It is self-evident that the father should be a man who leads his family in faith and morals. He has to teach his children how to respect themselves as well as others; he must also protect them from harm by teaching them discipline and responsibility for their actions.
This Father’s Day prayer reflects on the importance of fatherhood, especially in the light of how society treats fathers. We pray for God to continue to bless and encourage all those who father children with his faithfulness.
We ask that you would help them never lose their sense of humor in parenting and make sure they know how to scream at a child when it’s necessary for discipline. We pray that you would help them have patience and understanding as they provide for their children’s needs.
We ask also, God, that you would give fathers the courage to set an example of manhood in a world where fatherless homes are far too common. Give them the strength to be patient with our society’s lack of appreciation for fatherhood.
We pray that you would help fathers to have a sense of integrity, and not allow themselves to be taken advantage of by their employers or the government. We ask that you grant them the understanding they need in order to teach their children about responsibility without becoming overbearing taskmasters, but also give them strength and stamina when it is needed.
We pray that you would help fathers to find a balance between the responsibilities of work and fatherhood so they can be fulfilled on both fronts, and not neglect one for the other. Grant them wisdom in knowing when it’s time for playtime as opposed to just more duties or chores. We ask also that you forgive those fathers who have neglected their children, or allowed themselves to be pushed into the background by more demanding responsibilities. Help them find a way back to being an integral part of their family’s life and not just someone that hands out money every week.
Lord, Help us to see the beauty of parenthood and all it entails. Let’s find a way for fathers who are absent in their children’s lives to be more present– not just because they feel obligated but from loving hearts. And help those kids know that your love is enough when things get tough or you don’t have someone by your side every day as most do
Lord, please fill fatherless children with hope as we pray
Many fathers struggle with fatherhood because they don’t know what it means. Please help them understand this important role and the joys of fatherhood. Fatherhood is not just about being a money provider, but also being an integral part of their family’s life; teaching them what they need to know in order to be successful adults in this world.
The greatest father to every believer is God the Father, the Bible says in John 3:16 that “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
Father’s day is a time to reflect on God’s love over our lives (Psalm 20:5) and to thank him for all he has done and continues to do in our lives.
When is Father’s Days Celebrated?
Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June every year, as a day when people honor their fathers by spending time with them and giving gifts. It should not be just about being together or exchanging presents; it is also an opportunity for fatherhoods to make a positive difference.
Father’s Day is not just for fatherhoods, but also for the children who have fathers in their lives such as mother’s day which is celebrated on the second Sunday of May every year and honors mothers by spending time with them and giving gifts to show appreciation for all they do. This holy day should be about honoring our fatherhoods, motherships, and fatherships by thanking them for all they do.
