  MESSAGE                                                Mary Adams

OPENING PRAYER
We thank you God for how you love us, how you set the example of parenthood. We thank you God today for our parents, especially for our fathers. We pray that whether they are still with us or with you, that you might bless them. That you would forgive, as we forgive, any failings that they may have had or still have, that you might bring to yourself and hallow all the good they did or do, and lead them in righteousness with cords of human kindness and ties of love now and forever more. We ask you God that we might be better parents and set examples in all things, WE pray for the young people in our families and in our community, for a good example from us, for a desire to walk in the way of the blessed.
Amen
