8 Prayers for Father

It is hard to overstate the earthly significance of parents. Parents are privileged to play a formative role in their children’s development by providing love, support, nurture, discipline, protection, and guidance. A father’s love, care, and faithful example is instrumental to the child’s well-being and spiritual formation. It has been said, “Every son quotes his father, in word and in deed.” In this way, father’s often serve as one of their children’s first and most influential models of life and faith. 

Heavenly Father, Please help me to see this work of parenting rightly. You have blessed me with my children to nurture, lead, love, and rear. Please help me to appreciate this privilege and gift. May I see it not only as an investment into them but also as an offering unto you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 
Heavenly Father, Aid my efforts to raise my children and follow the pattern you have laid down. You are merciful, gracious, longsuffering, full of steadfast love and faithfulness. May my fatherly love resemble your loving care. May they see you in me as I protect, provide, love, and lead them. In Jesus’ name, Amen. 

Heavenly Father, I am well acquainted with my weaknesses, inadequacies, and shortcomings as a father and man. Would you take my sincere but imperfect efforts and use them to form my children into the people you intend them to be? In Jesus’ name, Amen. 
Heavenly Father, I am pulled in many different directions. Sometimes it feels like the demands, needs, and burdens are never-ending and too many to satisfy. Please help me to give priority to the things which matter most in your sight. May I say no to things that compromise my faithfulness as a father, in Jesus’ Name. 

Father, May I enjoy the journey of parenting and not just look toward the destination. Help me to slow down enough to experience and delight in the uniqueness of each of my children. May I enjoy many hugs and kisses, bike rides & dances, baseball games, and family trips in Jesus’ name amen. 
Lord, Thank you for giving me an excellent partner in this work of parenting. Thank you that my wife’s love and service enable me to be the best possible Father that I can be. May our children learn from us how to be faithful in rearing their children. May our family be blessed with many generations of faithful Christians. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

Heavenly Father, I want to parent in a way that is honoring and pleasing to you. Help me to avoid the practices of this world and to stay true to you. Remind me that being a father is not about my ego or legacy as much as it is about your purposes and plans. May my parenting reflect your priorities in Jesus’ Name Amen. 
Heavenly Father, Thank you for giving me, my earthly Father. While he may not have been perfect, his imperfect example points to the reality of your perfect love. Thank you that I learned from him both toughness and tenderness. May you raise more fathers who know you as their heavenly Father for the children of our world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
