June Prayer Focus : Dads

God our Father, we give you thanks and praise for dads, young and old.
We pray for young dads, newly embracing their vocation. May they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family, and faith in joy and sacrifice. We pray for dads around the world whose children are lost or suffering. May they know the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow. We pray for men who are not dads but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice. We remember dads, granddads, and great granddads, who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish us with their love. —Amen
