This is the day in the United States that we honor our earthly father or father figure. But we take this moment to honor Abba - Father God. He is faithful. He is gracious.

So we forgive all those who are father figures in this life and have wounded us, failed us, or did not represent Abba. We ask Father for you to impart to them and minister to them so they may grow up into You and Your Son's image. But we thank You for Your everlasting love and presence in our life.
