Thank You for this special weekend when we can celebrate the gift of fathers. You, our Father in heaven, have given everyone a dad. Some of us grieve the loss of our fathers. Some have been gone for many years. Others are still with us. Some of these fathers are not doing very well physically. Others have never had that wonderful encounter with the living Christ, Your Son, where they have been born-again from above.
Today I pray for the children of fathers who don't know You personally. I pray that You will encourage them and give them strength to believe that You are "able to save to the uttermost, all those that call upon You."
Father, I pray for Terry Shirkie today as she continues to pray for Dad Golden. Father, give her strength that can only come from you. We, the Pilgrim Pals Prayer Partners, lift up Dad Golden to You this moment. May he experience You in all Your fullness today. Father, may he trust You with his heart, his life, his all. We have been praying for him for so long. Hear our prayers this day and answer for Jesus' sake.
Thank you for the blessed assurance we have that You hear and answer prayer. We commit Dad Golden and every other father to You today!
Be with Vicki's husband and Pilot Mom's husband today. They are dads who need Your touch on their bodies. Thank You for bringing them through their surgeries.
We thank You for what You will do this Father's Day weekend in Jesus' mighty name. AMEN!
