God our Father, in your wisdom and love
you made all things.

Bless these men, that they may be strengthened
as Christian fathers.

Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.

Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
may honor them always
with a spirit of profound respect and love.

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
