Father's Prayer

Blessed are You, God and Father of us all, for the gift of our father.
Today we honor and thank him for the gift he is in our lives.
His love for us is a reflection of Your divine love.
Bless him this day with Your strength and Your power
that he may continue to be a sign of Your abiding love.
May we, who have the honor of bearing his family name,
assist him with our obedience, respect and deep affection.
Bless him on this special day with happiness, health, peace and
good fortune so that he who shared of his very life
may live together with You, his God and heavenly Father, for ever and ever.
Amen.
