A Prayer for Fathers
[Taken from St. George’s Cathedral Bulletin, Saskatoon – June 21, 2020]
God our Father,
We give you thanks and praise
For fathers young and old
We pray for young fathers,
Newly embracing their vocation;
May they find the courage and perseverance
To balance work, family and faith
In joy and sacrifice.
We pray for our own fathers
Who have supported and challenged us;
May they continue to lead
In strong and gentle ways.
We remember fathers around the world
Whose children are lost or suffering;
May they know that the God of compassion
Walks with them in their sorrow.
We pray for men who are not fathers
But still mentor and guide us
With fatherly love and advice.
We remember fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers
Who are no longer with us
But who live forever in our memory
And nourish us with their love. Amen.
