O St. Joseph

A Prayer for All Fathers

Heavenly Father, you have chosen to reflect your perfect and unwavering love for each of us, through imperfect men who faithfully and untiringly love their children. How truly important and special fathers are, that you would allow them to be a living sign of our providential care.

We ask you to bless all men that you have called to the holy vocation of fatherhood. May they persevere in every trial, rejoice in every blessing and never cease praying for their children. By their paternal encouragement, unfailing fidelity and good example, may they lead their children to the bliss of heaven.

O St. Joseph, patron of all fathers, be every dad’s inspiration in all that they think, say and do. Amen.

hugs n’ blessings and a bushel of gratitude for all those Dads striving to do the very best they can!

Have you ever had a moment when you’ve cried out for help?

That’s called humanness.

However, we can’t hide from God. He knows our heart better than anyone else, as every good Father does.

This is why we can humbly go to Him, in awe of the great forgiveness he offers for seeking to figure out things on our own – before coming to Him.

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
