Praying for Fathers

Spokane and Father’s Day: Nearly anyone who has lived here knows they go together. That’s a pretty cool connection! And no matter who we are, we have a connection (biologically, at least) with our fathers.

Being a good father is a tough job. On this Father’s Day, will you take a moment to pray for fathers?

  • If you are a teenager or a child, pray that he will love the Lord with all his heart and know how to be a good dad.
  • If you are an adult, pray for his spiritual life and that your relationship with him will be rich. If your relationship is not good, pray for the Lord to heal and give reconciliation: first with Christ, then, if possible, with one another.
  • If you are the wife of a father, pray that godly wisdom will rule his life.
  • As a church, pray for the fathers in our congregation, that they will love the Lord passionately so that love will spill over into their families’ lives.
  • If your father is no longer alive, thank God that you have life because of him. If your relationship was good, smile and be grateful. If your relationship was bad or nonexistent, pray that you will find comfort and strength in God as your heavenly Father.

My father was a good man. I look forward to seeing him again in heaven. For those fathers who are still on the earth, they need our prayers. Do it today.
