My God,

You are the ultimate Father, the source of love and wisdom. I come to You today with a heavy heart, lifting up my earthly father. I pray that You would bless him with health, strength, and peace. Provide him with the endurance and patience he needs to navigate life’s challenges. Help him to feel Your presence and love in every moment, and guide him in all his decisions.

I ask that You would surround my father with Your protection and grace. Help him to find joy and fulfillment in his work and relationships. Give him the courage to face any obstacles that come his way and the faith to trust in Your perfect plan for his life. May he feel Your love enfolding him and Your peace filling his heart.

I thank You, Lord, for the gift of my father and for all the ways he has shaped and influenced my life. I pray that You would continue to bless and watch over him. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
