6 Blessed Prayers for My Dad In Heaven

The relationship between a father and his children is important. Fathers teach us about the world, and they support us as we learn and grow. If your father has already passed on, you will likely miss his comforting presence and words of wisdom. As you pray to God, you have the privilege to feel his comfort, and you will feel the presence of your dad watching over you.

Let us pray.
