Today we lift up all the men to whom You have entrusted the gift of life.
We thank You for the men called to physical fatherhood and for spiritual fathers.
We thank You for giving us a glimpse of Your fatherly attributes in those fathers who have loved and protected us well.
We thank You for redeeming those father relationships which have been marked with pain and brokenness.
We thank You that, no matter what our personal experience of fatherhood might be, You are the perfect Father.
You love us, and accept us, and want us to know, deep in our bones, our true worth as Your beloved daughters. You protect us and bind our wounds when we fall or our hearts get broken.
You gather us tenderly in Your arms and give us rest.
Father, we love You, help us learn to rely entirely on You with childlike trust and surrender.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort…” -2 Corinthians 1:3
