Prayer for Father’s Day

O Lord our God, we come before this day to honor our fathers. 

We grew in your heart before you held us.  Thank you for holding us close.

You met us fully as you first saw us and loved us unconditionally.

You helped us learn to fail and continue to try to succeed patiently (most of the time).

You adopted us as Joseph did Jesus, praying that we might have opportunities beyond your imagination.  Thank you fathers, uncles, godparents, grandparents, and friends who have all stood up to become fathers in our lives.

Amen
