A PRAYER FOR FATHERS' DAY. God our heavenly Father, in your wisdom and love you made all things. Bless our earthly father. Let the example of his faith in you and love of you shine forth in all that he says and does. Grant that we, his family, may honor him always with a spirit of profound respect.

A DAILY PRAYER FOR JUNE — O God, on the first Christian Pentecost you poured out your Holy Spirit upon and into the hearts of many. May this same Spirit continue to work keeping us from falling, teaching us your good and gracious will, enabling us to produce fruits that help others and give you glory, strengthening us during times of trial and comforting us when our last hour on this earth approaches; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen

(Ernest Tittle 1885-1949)
