Heavenly Father, I thank you for my father and mother, and for our home.
Bless us all, and help us to love You; And in love to serve one another as Jesus taught us to do. Give me strength to do what is right today, and to do to others as I would want them to do to me.
I thank you, Lord, for my father.
Help me to realize the depth of his love for me, so often left unspoken, and to appreciate his great and continuous sacrifices.
His fatherly care reflects your divine care;
His strength, your power;
His understanding, your wisdom.
He is your faithful servant and image.
Bless him with peace of soul, health of body, and success in his life. Amen.
