GOD, PLEASE BLESS ALL FATHERS
By Marjorie Holmes



God bless fathers, all fathers old and young.
Bless the new, young father holding his son or daughter in his arms for the first time. Steady his trembling, Lord, make his arms strong.

Give him the ambition and strength to provide for its physical needs. But even more, give him the love and common sense to provide for its hungering hurt.
Give him the time and the will to be its friend. Give him wisdom, give him patience, give him justice in discipline.

Make him a hero in his youngster's eyes. So that the word Father will always mean a person to be respected, a fair and mighty man.

And God bless older fathers too.
Fathers who are weary from working for their young. Fathers who are sometimes disappointed, discouraged. Fathers whose children don't always turn out the way they'd hope; fathers of children who seem thoughtless, ungrateful, critical, children who rebel.
Bless those fathers, Lord; comfort them.

And stay close to all these fathers when they must tell sons and daughters good-bye. When kids leave home, going off to college, or to marry, or to war -- fathers need to be steadied in their trembling then too, Lord. (Mothers aren't the only ones who cry.)

You, our Heavenly Father, must surely understand these earthly fathers well.
We so often disappoint You, rebel against You, fail to thank You, turn away from You. So in Your infinite love...bless fathers, all fathers old and young.
