13 Strong Prayers for Your Dad

Fatherhood is no easy task. It requires a lot of hard work, dedication, and love. These strong prayers for your dad will lift him up to the Lord and help to strengthen and encourage his own walk with Christ.

Prayer #1

Father, thank you for my dad. Please continue and complete your work in him, granting that he may walk with you like Enoch, believe you like Abraham, obey you like Isaac, wrestle with you like Jacob, know your hand on his life like Joseph, speak face-to-face with you like Moses, win victories for you like Gideon, speak boldly for you like Elijah, worship you like David, see you high and lifted up like Isaiah, and carry Jesus’ cross like Simon of Cyrene.

Prayer #2

Dear God, the Father of us all, I thank you for my father. Along with my mother, through the marvel of your creation, my father gave me the gift of life itself. He was such a good teacher and mentor, such a wonderful example of how to live a life of faith. Please take care of him now and be generous with him as you prepare him for the rewards of eternal life you have prepared for him.

Prayer #3

God of Love, I come before you to pray for my father. You know how much he suffered and you alone fully know how much was wounded and broken in him. I feel so sad, and at times I feel so angry, so cheated, because I couldn’t have a good relationship with him. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life resenting my father, so I turn to you to hold him up to you. I know you are a God of mercy. Forgive him and heal him. Please let that forgivenss touch my heart as well. I want to forgive him and know the peace of letting go of those hurts – or at least the peace of not letting them continue to hurt me. I pray for him because I want what is best for him. I want him to know you and to know your love for him. One day, in your loving embrace, may all the wounds in his heart be healed.

 

Prayer #4

Dear God, I thank you for my husband. I thank you for letting this man come into and complete my life. I delight in making him happy and caring for him. I am so grateful for how he loves me and cares for me. You know that there are days that we get on each other’s nerves, but today, I’m so grateful that this man completes my life and that you have given him to me to love and cherish all the days of my life. Amen.

Prayer #5

God, according to the riches of Your glory, grant my dad to be strengthened with power through Your Spirit in his inner being, so that Christ may dwell in his heart through faith–that he, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that he may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Prayer #6

Lord, you know my husband and you have blessed him. I thank you for his gifts and for his love for me and for our children. I love him so much. And, I worry about him so much. Keep him in your care and help us to stay close. Help us face the difficulties we must face together. Help us live a long life together, if that is your will. I ask you this, in Jesus’ name.

Prayer #7

Dear God, the Father of us all, I thank you for my father. Along with my mother, through the marvel of your creation, my father gave me the gift of life itself. He was such a good teacher and mentor, such a wonderful example of how to live a life of faith. Please take care of him now and be generous with him as you prepare him for the rewards of eternal life you have prepared for him.

Prayer #8

Father of Life, I thank you for my father. He was such a blessing to me while he was still with us. I still miss him so much. I thank you for what he left me as gifts of love and faith. I pray that he has enjoyed your embrace and that the relationship he and I have now might someday be renewed with you in heaven. Until then, I entrust him to your love and ask you to let him look out for me and to assist me to stay on the path to you.

Prayer #9

God of love, you know what my husband is going through. The pressure he is under really scares me. I can see the toll it takes on him. I try to comfort him, to be patient with him, to help him enjoy a different world at home. Please watch out for him and protect him. Don’t let him face more than he can bear. I don’t know what I’d do without him. Thank you, Lord, for listening to my prayer. Hold him in your most loving heart, I pray.
