Opening Prayer for Father's Day

Psalm 68:4-5
    "Sing to God, sing praises to His name;
    Extol Him who rides on the clouds,
    By His name YAH,
    And rejoice before Him.
    5      A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
    Is God in His holy habitation."

It is a joyful sound to hear your people gather and sing. We keep this festal day, the Lord’s Day, when Your Son emerged from the tomb victorious over death.  We extol Him who has ridden on the clouds up to your throne.  On this Father’s Day we remember that You are a father of the fatherless and a defender of widows.  You bring us from loss to fellowship, from weeping to joy, from despair to peace.  

So we are here to proclaim the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into Your marvelous light.  We glory in Your irresistible calling of us, Lord, to Yourself.  Help us as we answer Your call and worship You now.  Grant us patience to listen, eagerness to hear you.
