God our Father, We give you thanks and praise for fathers
young and old. We pray for young fathers, newly embracing
their vocation; May they find courage and perseverance to
balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice.
We pray for all the Fathers around the world whose children are
lost or suffering; May they know that the God of
compassion walks with them in their sorrow.
We pray for men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide
us with fatherly love and advice.
We remember fathers, grandfathers, and great grandfathers who
are no longer with us, but who live forever in our memory and
nourish us with their love.
May the Almighty Father, bless them all.
