Father’s Blessing

God bless all father and fathers to be. A beloved and often repeated prayer by individuals and in groups begins, “Our Father . . .”

– sometimes when kids think they are smarter than adults – than fathers are appreciated for their wisdom and devotion. A prayer is a powerful way to bless fathers: “God, bless fathers with all the need to be wise and loving parents.” And perhaps a prayer is even more immediate when a father or a father-to-be prays:

“God, guide me in being a father that enriches the lives of my children.”

I will be a father to him and he shall be a son to me.I will not take my steadfast love from him, as I took it from him who was before you. – 1 Chronicles 17:13
