FATHER'S DAY PRAYER
Father's Day Prayer
This prayer was originally written by Pastor Ed at Salisbury Vineyard
church and read out as a christian blessing over the dad's present
and as an acknowledgement of the important role of fatherhood in the
lives of our children.
Fathers Day Prayer & Blessing
We thank you for these men
Men who have taken on the impossible task of following in Your
We thank you for their courage and strength
And our prayer is that as they learn what it means to be a father
That You would Father them, and apprentice them
We pray that you would teach them how to be good fathers
no matter how old or young their children are.
Give them hearts like your heart
That they may become known for
Compassion, tenderness, and mercy.
May they live lives full of love and grace.
May they not be afraid to discipline
And may they lead their families with great wisdom and gentleness
Anoint them to be warriors in Your kingdom
To wage war for their families in prayer
To be defenders and guardians of all that is true and good
Make them aware of the spiritual battle that You call them to engage in
We honour you in your God given duty
May you walk free from the lies of the world
That say a father is not important
For we say that you are important
You are to be a light in darkness
A living example of God Himself
We bless you to be strong and courageous
To wear the full armour of God
To resist the devil, and to stand
Stand firm for your wives and children
Stand firm for the body of Christ
We bless you to go out and do great deeds for the kingdom of God
To become oaks of righteousness
To rise to the fullness of Christ
And to run hard the race that has been marked for you
We claim this blessing for you
That you would be counted righteous in this life
That by the grace of God you would be blameless
And that in so doing your children would be blessed
What you do in life echoes in eternity.
O God bless these men
And may their echoes be loud and full and pleasing in Your sight
throughout all ages.
As I recall, there was barely a dry eye in the
house and all of the dads
stood as this was read and they were blessed. They were then
presented with gifts of chocolate as a tangible thank you for the
wonderful job that they do!
May God bless you and thanks for visiting
