Let us pray that God will give all fathers strength to make proper role models for their children. To give their children the support and the security they will need to become secure, confident, happy, productive, giving and God loving adults. This includes men who feel that by working 60-80 hours per week is providing for their family or those who feel they won’t be missed when they leave their families to setup housekeeping with a woman other than their wife and mother of their children who are lost in Satan’s folly.
God, please help all men to understand and give them the strength to be the kind of father that Joseph was to Jesus.
I pray that my father is being cleansed in Purgatory. I pray will all my heart that God gave him the mercy to get to Purgatory and that we may mend our wounds in the afterlife.
In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and shall be forever.
