Almighty God, you are the hope for the nations and father to the fatherless. You are our rock and our provider. I bring fathers everywhere to your mercy seat for your favor and blessing. Grant them your peace and assurance. Increase their boldness and strength to protect and guide their children. Lead them by your Word into the wisdom and discernment that fatherhood requires. May they be loved and respected by their kids. Encircle them with your robe that fills the temple. Anoint them by your grace. Draw them to your side that they may tangibly know your presence. Let them know the loving kindness of their Father in Heaven as they go through the rhythms of their days. Give them rest between your powerful shoulders at night. I lift my prayer for fathers in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Be glorified in the outcome, Father. Amen.
“Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love.” (2 John 1: 3 ESV)
