Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

A Father Like God

1 John 2:13 (NLT)
      ”I am writing to you who are mature in the faith (Fathers) because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.”

One of the greatest aspects of fatherhood, especially as they develop spiritually over the years, is their personal knowledge of Christ. In part it is an intimacy that comes through life relationships with their family. Learning what it means to be a godly father is sometimes painful but results in ultimate pleasure.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for Father’s Day and the wonderful, abiding memories that will be shared and spoken of honoring Fatherhood. Fathers as leaders of their family, protectors of their homes, providers for their households and examples for their children need prayer for such a glorious task. Speaking as a father, we have our flaws, failures, and foul-ups, of which no one is surprised.

Yet, we have the most wonderful challenge, the most precious opportunity, and the most cherished privilege of being a father, hopefully like You. “The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” Psalm 103:13 (NLT)

Heavenly Father You express, through Your character and love, all of the attributes of what Fatherhood means. Help us fathers to so live that our families will experience the blessings and benefits of being a father like you.

Through Jesus our Lord, God our Father and the Holy Spirit our helper. Amen.
