Prayer for Father’s Day

Four Doctor Hiemstra
The Four Doctor Hiemstras

By Stephen W. Hiemstra

Heavenly Father:

We praise you for being a loving father,

who is a good provider,

who is always present,

who loves us when we are unlovable.

We confess that we are frequently none of these things,

not especially loving,

not present when we should be,

not able to see beyond our own needs.

We thank you for the example of Jesus Christ,

who demonstrated sacrificial love,

who remained fully present at the cost of his own life,

who loved the many unlovable people that we typically ignore.

In the power of your Holy Spirit give us the desire and the ability

to love, to be present, and to see beyond our own needs.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
