Most gracious Heavenly Father,

I thank You for being a Father to me and a Father to Fathers
I thank You for our Spiritual Fathers that have been so vital to the faith of your people
I thank You for our Grandfathers who have taught us so much, laughed with us and loved us

I ask You to give our earthly Father
Wisdom to lead his family and give wise counsel
Compassion to love, comfort and encourage his wife and children
Mercy to show forgiveness
Financial Provision to provide adequately for their needs
A Godly heart that he may be an example to all he encounters
Courage to face the world when it seems that everything is against him
Perseverance to endure the mundane
A Smile to lighten his load
Joy to spread
