A Father's Day Prayer

Abba Father,
Today, we pray and give thanks for our grandchildren’s earthly fathers. We pray, like David, they will be men after Your own heart, men walking in obedience to Your will (Acts 13:22). Let them draw deeper into Christ’s love every day.
We pray they rely on You for the wisdom, courage, knowledge and skills they need to be good parents and strong role models. Guide them as they provide for their family’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs. Help them protect their loved ones by drawing safe and healthy boundaries.
We pray they actively and lovingly engage in their children’s lives. Let them teach and guide through their own example of godly living, not provoking their children to anger but bringing them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Let their words and actions consistently point to Your love, forgiveness, mercy and grace.
Bless them with hearts which are overflowing with love for You and their families.
In Christ’s Name, we pray.
Amen.
