Prayer Offered for June 15, 2023

Gracious God, whom we often call Father:

This weekend we pray in gratitude for our fathers both living and deceased.

We thank You for all those who have shown us a fatherly care, and in honor of them all, we say:

You, our loving God, You took the strength of a mountain,

The majesty of a tree,

The warmth of a summer sun,

The calm of a quiet sea,

The comforting arm of night,

The power of the eagle’s flight,

The joy of a morning in spring,

The faith of a mustard seed, and

The patience of eternity.

You combined these qualities, and

When there was nothing more to add,

You knew Your masterpiece was complete,

And so, You called it...Dad.—AMEN.
