Dear God, thank you for being a Father to the fatherless. Unlike me, there are so many men here who have had no fathers as role models growing up. My Dad did everything right, but I messed up. Forgive me, God. I do look forward to being a father myself someday. Bless all fathers and help them realize that a good father is one of the most valuable assets in their family and in our society. Amen.
He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge. Proverbs 14:26
