For Father's Day
Mercy of Mercies join all those parents keeping watch this night and all those who have erred and are making amends. Mercy of Mercies keep and bless them. Join all those parents who doubt themselves tonight and what tomorrow might bring, who wrestle fear and who guard their children from the demons of diminishment and despair, and help us join with those parents, assure them, and aid them in their courageous struggles. Mercy of Mercies keep and bless them and those who join them. Join all those parents who have turned away and turned aside, who have been torn apart by addiction and who have dissolved in dissipation and bring them back to love's way. Help us meet those parents and aid them in finding and creating home again, and the way of mercy made plain. Mercy of Mercies join us this night and let us join you in sustaining and caring for the ones who care for the children, now and always. Amen.
