prayer for fathers day 2021

God, we thank you for our fathers, who give us so much.

We thank you for the strength they provide when we are down, and the wisdom they share when we need advice.

We thank you for their love and devotion, which are never-ending.

We pray that we will always honor and show gratitude to our fathers, who have given us so much.


Thank you for our fathers. We give thanks for the sacrifices made by our fathers and grandfathers, who gave us a better life. We are grateful for the love they have shown us and the care they have given us throughout our lives. We pray that we can continue to show them love and respect in return.

We pray that you will keep our fathers safe as they go about their lives and work each day, that they will be protected from harm and illness, and that they will be filled with joy as they continue to provide for their families. Amen

Dear God,

Thank you for the gift of fatherhood. We pray that we may be able to emulate your example and show our children the love and care that you have shown us throughout our lives. We pray that they know you are watching over them, guiding their steps and leading them to a life full of joy.

We pray that as fathers, we may be strong and loving role models for our children, teaching them right from wrong with kindness and compassion. Help us to be mindful of their needs and desires, but also to make sure they understand how much work goes into being a good parent.

Please guide us on this day as we show our children what it means to be a father by creating memories together that they will always remember. In Jesus name we pray, Amen!

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank you for the gift of fathers. We pray that you would bless all fathers with the strength and wisdom to guide their children and provide them with a safe home. Please help us to honor our fathers by being good sons and daughters. May we be grateful for the sacrifices they have made on our behalf and strive to be worthy of their love.


Heavenly Father, today we honor the fathers in our lives. We pray for those who were fathers to us, and for those who are fathers to us now.

Fathers are often hard to understand and even harder to live with. They can be stubborn, short-tempered, and demanding. But they also bear the most beautiful of gifts: children.

Fathers may not always make the right decisions or do what’s best for their children, but they always do their best to love them. Please bless these men as they continue to learn and grow as fathers, so that they may be better equipped to love their children in return.

prayers for Father’s Day


Lots of people are gearing up to celebrate their fathers this Sunday. Socks and DIY sets will be flying off the shelves, and thousands of heartfelt customized gifts will be given by children keen to make an effort to show their appreciation of all the things their dads have done for them.

For various reasons, not everyone will look forward to Father’s Day. But regardless of whether your dad is a fond fixture in your life or you’ve never know him, your Father in Heaven has always and will always care for you.

Loving dads deserve gratitude and acknowledgement all year round, but there’s no harm in joining in the fun of Father’s Day.

If you’re still searching for something special, and want to give something that’s truly from the heart, then you shouldn’t over look the personal touch of prayer.

The following five prayers are suitable for whether you have a great relationship with your dad, have dealt with losing him, have never known him or are torn up about the lack of love between you. And there’s even one which everyone can say to thank God your Father for his endless love and guidance.

We give our thanks, Creator God, for the fathers in our lives.
 Fatherhood does not come with a manual, and reality teaches us that some fathers excel while others fail.
 We ask for Your blessings for them all – and forgiveness where it is needed.This Father’s Day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and families, and the ways – both big and small – they lift children to achieve dreams thought beyond reach.
 So too, we remember all those who have helped fill the void when fathers pass early or are absent – grandfathers and uncles, brothers and cousins, teachers, pastors and coaches – and the women of our families.
 For those who are fathers, we ask for wisdom and humility in the face of the task of parenting. Give them the strength to do well by their children and by You.
 In Your Holy name, O God, we pray. Amen
– Rev. Chuck Currie

Dear God,
 Bless all the fathers in the world who have accepted the responsibilities of being a parent. Guide them to be outstanding role models to their children. Let them look to your example and to parent with patience, unconditional love and understanding. Amen.

Loving God,
 We thank you for the gift of good dads, and everything that they do for us.
 Help them to have patience when we’re difficult, wisdom when we can’t see the way, strength when we need comforting, and love at all times, so that, through them, we get a little glimpse of how you feel about us.
 Our heavenly Father, Amen.

For all You have given, thank You God.
 For all You have withheld, thank You God.
 For all You have withdrawn, thank You God.
 For all You have permitted, thank You God.
 For all You have prevented, thank You God.
 For all You have forgiven me, thank You God.
 For all You have prepared for me, thank You God.
 For the death You have chosen for me, thank you God.
 For the place you are keeping for me in heaven, thank You God.
 For having created me to love You for eternity, thank You God.

 Help the absent fathers to see the beauty of parenthood, and how glorious it is to bring up a child. Let those children whose fathers haven’t been present in their lives know that your love and grace does more than just fill that gap. And help them find the strength to abandon feelings of resentment and sorrow as they journey through life.

May God, out of his glorious riches, strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, that Christ may dwell in your heart through faith.

May you, being rooted and established in love, have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and may you know this love that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. 

May God, who is utterly able, do immeasurably more for you and in you than all you can ever ask or imagine.

May God be gracious to you.

May God bless you.

May God make his face shine upon you.

May you be strengthened with all power according to God’s glorious might.
