10 Prayers For My Dad

I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with a rod wielded by men, with floggings inflicted by human hands.  But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you.

2 Samuel 7:14-15

Fatherhood is a role played in the life of another person. Being someone’s father means being responsible for the safety, training, upbringing, and protection of the person. You don’t need to only be biologically related to someone for you to be that person’s father.

A father is compassionate, patient, stern when he has to be, supportive, a motivator, a corrector, a provider, and a mentor.

Fathers represent God on earth and are supposed to give their children the same things God gives to us. From the moment you accept fatherhood your life changes forever. You now become responsible for a person’s intellectual and social upbringing.

They look up to you for guidance when they are in trouble. They also depend on you for protection and nurture just as God does for his children.

Fathers love their children most of all.

I will guide you in the way of wisdom and I will lead you in upright paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered, and when you run, you will not stumble.  

Proverbs 4:11-12

Fathers know better than their children and must guide them along life’s road. When children trip and fall it is the responsibility of fathers to pick them up and encourage them to move again.

Fathers must live by example for their kids and instill in them all the good qualities they need to live when they are not there. God has given us his word to model our lives over. We must intern model our lives so that our children will learn from us and live their lives with good values they can also transfer to their children.

When you pray, say a prayer for your dad. Ask God to keep him strong and wise so he can impact your life in a positive way.

God is the ultimate example of a good father. Despite our many flaws, he loves us anyway. He continues to love us unconditionally, even when we disobey him. Ask him to make you a good father to somebody. Share your life with a young one and bring them up with the strength and wisdom of God.

Your dad should be the representative of God in your life. He should be your mentor, provider, and protector against all evil. He is also human like you so learn to pray for him. When he is feeling down, draw near to him and show him some love.

Give him the same reverence that you give the Lord. Obey him and always listen to the wise advice that he gives you. Pray for him always so his heart and soul can find peace.

But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him, and kissed him.

Luke 15:20

When you become a dad someday, don’t forget the story of the prodigal son. The father was always willing to accept his son no matter what distance was put between them. Pray that God helps you be a good father.
