Father God,
Today we honor the men in our lives who have
taught and guided us and loved and cared for us.
We pray for a spirit of consolation for
those whose fathers are a fond memory,
and a spirit of forgiveness for
those whose memory is not so fond.
May we all strive to show one another
the love of our Father in heaven.
We pray this in the name of the Father,
and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Amen.

Father God,
The world would have us doubt You and ourselves.
We pray for perseverance, strength and faith to overcome.
The devil tells us we can't, but Your Spirit is alive in us
and Your Spirit says we can!
We can go on another day even though it's hard.
We can forgive. We can seek You and humbly serve You.
We thank You for Your faithfulness;
for the guidance of Your Holy Spirit.
We pray to You in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
Amen.

Lord God,
We know our transgressions because
our shame keeps the memory fresh.
You would be right to condemn us.
But instead, through faith in Jesus
and by Your grace,
we are cleansed of our sin.
We are filled with joy at knowing You
and receiving Your mercy.
May we sing of Your righteousness
and declare Your praise, in Jesus' holy name.
Amen.

Our Lord and our God,
Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
You are awesome!
You're the only One worthy
of our praise and thanksgiving.
We are blessed to know You.
We pray for those who do not know
Your word and have not felt Your presence.
Help us to show Your love to the lost,
without judgement or disdain.
May all we do honor and glorify You.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Lord God,
We welcome Your Presence here.
Wherever two or more are gathered
in Your name, You are present with them.
Bring us all together as one in purpose.
May Your Spirit alight on each of us
so that we may reach a world in need.
In Jesus' holy name,
Amen.

Most merciful Father,
We thank You for Your deep love for us,
and for loving us despite our faults.
We appreciate all those You have put in our lives
who have cared for us, provided for us,
taught us, and pointed us toward You.
We pray that we would learn more each day
about how to love like You do
so that we can be a compassionate
and loving force in the lives of others.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

Lord,
May we find inspiration in Your word today
to bring us through the struggles
and challenges that we face.
You are the Light that guides our path,
the Healer who gives us peace,
and the Shepherd whom we follow.
We pray to You in Jesus' holy name.
Amen.
