To be a father is as equally important as being a mother. It requires an extreme commitment to giving the best care for children and an enormous amount of time to be allotted for generating income to provide the needs of the family while still being able to give time to play with the kids during their free time.
Indeed fatherhood is more than just a simple task that you could tick off of your to-do list.
Help all dads by praying these prayers for fathers and allow the power of God to guide earthly fathers to do what they are directed to do. We may not be able to give back all the hard work that our fathers had invested in us, but we can return the favor and show our great love towards them through these prayers and powerful words.

Help him, Lord, recognize his loved ones-his wife, uncles, brothers, sons, and daughters-who look up to him for his fatherhood. With great humility, we ask you to grant our dad the greatest desire and give him the chance to achieve dreams, thought further his reach. Amen.
We may not be able to preserve one’s youth and live long enough to see the next generation, but the way we treat our earthly father will carry on to our grandchildren’s children. Our relationship with our fathers will significantly impact the generations to come. As Christians, It is our responsibility to honor our earthly father regardless of any circumstance.
If we step back to see the bigger picture, we are forming the safest place on earth where we create a deep sense of trust between every person involved.
