Prayer for Dads

on a day set aside for blessing Dads,
we give you thanks for making them in the first place.
We know none of ours are perfect.
You are the only faultless Father,
the only perfect Daddy, 
the only forever Papa.
Still we thank you for the men you have given
and for showing them how to be more like you.
Thank you for the ones who have shared
hard-learned wisdom,
stubborn patience,
hopeful prayers.
And for those who have protected us from harm, 
worked hard to provide,
pointed us to you.
And so we ask,
please give them Joy in the hope
that their children will grow wise.
Please give them patience
on the days every plan is interrupted.
And please help them to be
faithful to the path of Christ.
Thank you for our Dads.
Bless them on this day.
