Your earthly father is one of the most important people in your life. Therefore, it only makes sense that everyday there are countless people who put together a prayer request with prayers for a father. Keep in mind that a prayer for a father doesn’t always have to be for your own father. There are numerous people who make prayers for the father of their friends and they also say prayers for men who are like fathers to them. If you have a man in your life who is a father, one of the best things that you can do for that man is to say special prayers for him so that he can continue to receive the guidance and love from God to be the best father he can possibly be.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
