Whether you recite them during Father’s Day, or any day of the year, it is important to say prayers for fathers to entrust them to Our Heavenly Father. Parent’s prayers help parents entrust their children to the Lord, so why not entrust parents to Him as well? Say a prayer for fathers to bless, protect and guide them as they fulfill their beautiful mission as protectors and educators. Turn to St. Joseph, a powerful intercessor and a model for fathers: He understands all the joys and sorrows of fatherhood, as He Himself watched over the Holy Family.
“St. Joseph, guardian of Jesus and chaste husband of Mary,
you passed your life in loving fulfillment of duty.
You supported the holy family of Nazareth with the work of your hands.
Kindly protect all the fathers who trustingly come to you.
You know their aspirations, their hardships, their hopes.
They look to you because they know you will understand and protect them. You too knew trial, labor and weariness.
But amid the worries of material life your soul was full of deep peace and sang out in true joy through intimacy with God’s Son entrusted to you and with Mary, his tender Mother.
Assure those you protect that they do not labor alone.
Teach them to find Jesus near them and to watch over him faithfully as you have done.”
