Every Father, grandfather , stepfather, solo Father , grieving Father , Father of the fatherless , Father without children of their own .
We thank you for every father here today that they would know your pleasure and love for them. Give them all the strength, patience and wisdom to lead their sons and daughters into an open loving relationship. May their words always bring life and when they fall short may they know your compassion to forgive and begin again. Give them boldness and courage to be the father you have called them to be no matter how old their children are. May they never forsake praying for their children. Grant them your grace and favor to listen and to be listened to.
