Heavenly Father, you entrusted your Son Jesus,
the child of Mary, to the care of Joseph, an earthly father.
Bless all fathers as they care for their families. Give them
strength and wisdom, tenderness and patience; support them in the
work they have to do, protecting those who look to them, as we look
to you for love and salvation, through Jesus Christ our rock and
1 Corinthians 8:6
Here we have a good prayer for Fathers' day! There are some
lovely images of parenting, all based on Christian values. It is a
prayer which is also good for use at Christmas. This prayer
mentions the value of trust - notice that God is trusting people,
Joseph and Mary.
