If you are Dad or Granddad, you are deserving of blessing and honor for who you are and for all you do. No matter what your age, single or married, here is a prayer of blessing for you for every good work, every good word, and for every act of love you have ever offered on behalf of the ones you love:
Bless every father and every grandfather with the best of your spiritual blessings today. Let him know he is not alone in the tasks you have given him to provide for and support those under his care. Show him how much you delight in his work, and affirm the value of whatever You have given him to do—both as a father or grandfather and as a child of Yours. Confirm his worth daily so he has no reason to doubt whether he is loved in the eyes of his Heavenly Father.

As a father or grandfather, you probably struggle with inadequacy, doubt, and fear in parenting or grandparenting with questions like: Am I doing enough, being enough, leading my children in the right path? Am I meeting their needs? What more should/can I do to help my kids find their way in life? No matter how your father influenced you, positive or negative, you want more for your children. You want them to stand firm in their faith, even as you desire that for your own life.
Know that Jesus loves you and wants those same things for you, and that your work is never in vain. While you may never receive all the appreciation you deserve here on earth, God knows, and He will applaud you as His Christ-one in eternity as you stand before Him and hear His “Well Done!” You bring pleasure to Him, just being His child and doing what you can as a father or grandfather.
Happy Father’s Day to every dad and granddad. I hope this prayer for fathers and grandfathers will encourage your heart, not only on Fathers’ Day, but on every day of your life.
How has God blessed you as a father or grandfather?
