Good Shepherd Church Offers a Prayer For All Fathers


We came across this prayer for Father’s Day, author unknown, and we are uplifting all fathers near and far this Sunday.

Oh God, we thank you for fathers near, fathers with strong arms, and fathers with feeble knees. Present at the dinner table and at bathtub and at bedtime for prayers. Thank you, God, for fathers near. We thank you, O

God, for fathers far away, fathers who ache for their families, and fathers absent because of war, or disease, or despair. Fathers who are present and absent at the same time.

Thank you, God, for fathers far away. We thank you, O God, for caring communities where mothers fill in for fathers and fathers fill in for mothers, and grandparents fill in for parents. Where aunts and uncles, and those who are absolutely no kin at all step up to make our communities feel like a home.


You and your entire family are invited to worship with us at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church at 9:30 a.m. Sundays at 1201 Leta Drive in Security. Come and join us this summer!
