Dear Lord,

Bless every Father with the best of your spiritual blessings today. Let him know he is not alone in the tasks you have given him. Show him how much you delight in his work, and affirm the value of whatever you have given him to do - both as a father and as a child of yours. Confirm his worth daily so he has no reason to doubt whether he is loved in the eyes of his Heavenly Father.

Create in him a deep sense of trust in you, knowing that he can count on you to help him lead and protect those dependent on him. Let him know that every unselfish act of love and encouragement he has offered has been a gift that you gladly receive. Create in him a deep sense that he has what it takes.

Speak deep into his spirit the powerful words he longs to hear from you - that nothing can ever separate you from his love. Help him to grasp firmly the promises of your word, standing in faith on the things you declare are true. Reward him for his faithfulness past, present and future, assuring him that true success is in the Christ-like character you are forming in him.

Bless him with how to meet the needs of his children that are within his ability to do so, and help him to trust you for the rest. Build in him a sense of joy, humility and playfulness that draws his family close. Open his eyes to see beyond this world to a greater joy that never disappoints, and to a father who will never leave or abandon him. Give him a passionate faith, a persevering spirit, and a powerful testimony that overcomes any weakness or doubt.

Today, and for all the days of his life, fill him with the best of your blessings, so that one day he will stand before you and hear your ultimate words of praise, "Well done, my son, well done!".

We seal this blessing over you with the love of the Father, the grace and works of Jesus the son, and the presence of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
