Most loving, God and Father, I turn to you today to thank you for my father and to ask you to be with him.
He is such a wonderful man and I love him with all my heart. Thank you for the gift he has been in my life.
Right now, he is struggling so much and has so many burdens to carry. I simply ask that you protect him from the pressures he’s facing. If it is possible, relieve some of those pressures so that he can live with more peace and with so much less stress. Above all, I ask you to give him courage and hope. Let him keep it all in perspective and not lose his priorities. Let him have some fun and help him to stay close to those who love him and want to support him in all of this. Strengthen his faith in you so that he can be a living example of service, dedication, commitment and love to all the people with whom and for whom he works.
And, help me, Lord, know how to support him and love him, with your own love for him.
