Prayer For The Father
Dear Lord, I thank You for the relationship that I have with my earthly father and I pray that You bless him. Your word states that as a father has compassion on his children, so You have compassion on those who fear You. Lord, my relationship with my father has helped me understand the paradigm of my relationship with You, therefore I thank You for my father's life and I pray that You continue to use him, Amen.
Divine Father, I can sense that my father lacks strength right now so please uplift his spirit! I proclaim that You are his refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, he will not fear, because Your name is a strong tower; in You, he can find rest and be safe. Lord, please keep my father under Your loving eye so that he will no longer grieve but will have joy in You, his strength, Amen.
God of Wisdom, I thank You for the life of my earthly father because he taught me so many good things that have equipped me to survive in this life. Your word says that a father deals with his own children by encouraging, comforting and urging them to live lives worthy of God, who calls us to His kingdom and glory. Lord, I thank You for blessing me with a father who has kept Your word and has positively impacted my life, Amen.
Oh Majesty, please give me father strength to endure hardship as discipline, I know that the hardship is You treating him as a son. For what son is not disciplined by his father? I know that You love my father and are continually shaping him to be the person that You have called him to be. Father, I pray that as I too grow older, I will not be content with where I am, but will seek Your discipline so that I may be a better person than I was before, Amen.
King of Kings, I declare that You will be the source that my father turns to in times of counsel and guidance. Lord, You are faithful, even in times when my father (and I) has been faithless, for You cannot disown Yourself. I thank You for this word of encouragement; Lord, give my father the strength to remain faithful to You for You are good. Lord, You are the best source of counsel and guidance because You have his best interests at heart, Amen.
Omniscient God, thank You for blessing me with an earthly father who has been a reflection of Your word on a daily basis. My father has been a husband that has honored his wife and has treated my mother with understanding as they live together. Unlike how society shows me, my father has shown me how a woman should be respected and cared for. I pray that the things that my father's life has shown me will encourage me to be obedient to Your word also, Amen.
Blessed be Your Name, God! Thank You for Your word that guides me and has instructed me to listen to my father who gave me life, and to not despise my mother when she is old. I pray that I continue to respect my father for the role that You have given him in my life. I will not take Him for granted because Your word tells me not to, Amen.
Heavenly Father, I place my earthly father before You now and I ask that You keep him. He has kept Your word: as a Father, he did not provoke me to anger, but he brought me up in the discipline and instruction of Christ. Lord, I pray that the knowledge, morals, and principles that You led him to instill in me will also guide his life so that he may draw closer to You, Amen.
