A Mother’s Prayer
Dear Lord help me to be
a Mother that is led by Thee.
One that never has a care,
Even when I could pull out my hair
One that loves my kids, never ending.
Even when for Lego’s it seems I’m always spending.
Picking up toys, washing all the clothes.
Help me, Lord, before my mind goes.
Cooking food and mopping the floor.
Here I go again to the store.
“Mom! Mom! I need new clothes”
Oh well that’s the way the money goes!
Lord, if only I could have a minute alone
I promise I would not talk on the phone.
“Mom! Mom! He hit me on the head!”
Help me, Lord, why couldn’t I have stayed in bed????
Children screaming at each other.
What was the reason I wanted to be a Mother?
Mommy, I love you, Can I have a kiss?
These are the times I’m going to miss.
My little boys are growing up way too fast,
Lord, help me to show them the right path.
Listening to Your voice, telling them the way
Lord, help my boys to follow You everyday.
Let them give You all of their heart,
And from Your way let them never part.
Thank you Lord for allowing me to be
A mother that is led by Thee.
