The Perfect Father and a Father's Day Prayer

If there was self-help book that guaranteed the reader would become the perfect father, Iím sure it would be a best seller. There are few men who embark on this important role with the intention of being a failure. Unfortunately, while most men would like to be great fathers, all make mistakes. Some are pretty good, some are good at some things and not others, some become disastrous parents, but not one becomes the perfect father. There are no human role models for perfect fatherhood. We know that there is no perfection this side of heaven.

Fathers hold an important role in molding future generations. This world doesnít make a fatherís life easy and often fights for control of his family. Pray for the fathers in your community, not only on Fatherís Day, but every day.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I pray that each earthly father will seek your face and learn the wisdom for fatherhood from the One who is perfect.

I ask you to give earthly fathers the desire to pursue sincerity, honesty and faithfulness; for we know that you test each heart and take pleasure in integrity.

Cause each one to walk with honor, courage, and morality so that at the end of his life, he will have been a blessing to his children and to his grandchildren.

Give him a heart that is tender and merciful, and the desire to extend grace, born of strength, to his family.

Instill in him the unwavering strength and courage that comes with the confidence of knowing that his Father God is with him wherever he goes.
