Holy Source of All,
bless those who struggle to raise their children
in the world of technology and mindlessness.
Help those men known as Dad, Papa, Daddy, Pa,
to find those precious moments to hold their children,
to teach their children,
to love their children, as you love all that is -
beyond measure, without conditions.
When they are tired, bless them with the strength
to listen to the adventures of childhood days.
When they are worried, bless them with wisdom
to know how to let go of their cares.
When they are frustrated, bless them with patience
to understand the cause of their frustrations,
so that they do not lash out at their children.
Blessed Parent,
shower the fathers of this world in grace
so that they will shine as examples of Your Love 
for their children and the world.
