Fatherhood is not easy task. It requires a lot of hard work, dedication, and love. These strong prayers for your Dad will lift him up to the Lord and help to strengthen and encourage his own Walk with Christ.
Heavenly father, I place my earthly father before you now and I ask that you keep him. He has kept your word: as a father, he did not provoke me to anger, but he brought me up in the discipline and instruction of Christ. Lord, I pray that the knowledge, morals, and principles that you led him to instill in me also guide his life so that he may draw closer to you, Amen.
Blessed be your name, God! Thank you for your word that guides me and has instructed me to listen to my father who gave me lift, and to not despise my mother when she is old. I pray that I continue to respect my father for the role that you have given him in my life. I will not take him for granted because your word tells me not to, amen.
