Prayer on Father’s Day

Almighty God,

You have given us the wonderful gift of a father after your example.

Down through the ages fathers have cared for their children and most of them

have given themselves unstintingly

for their families.

I thank you for my father:

Even though he may not agree completely with my outlook and way of life, I know he is genuinely concerned

about me.

Keep him well in body and soul

and if he has already come to you,

grant him eternal happiness.
