A Father’s Prayer

Dear Lord,

So far I’ve done all right

I haven’t gossiped,

haven’t lost my temper,

haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or overindulgent.

I’m really glad about that.


But in a few minutes, God,

I’m going to get out of bed.

And from then on,

I’m going to need a lot more help.



May your Father’s Day, and every day,  be filled with delight and honor in your family!
