A MOTHER’S DAY PRAYER
Heavenly Father, to you I pray…
On this day called, “Mother’s Day.”
Let all mother’s on earth give praise,
To you…for the children that you gave.
For you have blessed them from above,
with little souls to nourish and love.
Let them mold each one with care…
And teach them to be kind and share.
Forgiveness is the special key…
Start early on, to help them see.
Their fragile minds are easily impressed.
Please teach them ways, so they’ll be blessed.
Sow Godly seeds into their minds.
With careful pruning, you will find…
Young adults with such strong roots,
all through life, will bear rich fruit.
And then have faith for God to show…
Them all the rest they have to know.
Remember they’re His children too.
For they were only lent to you.
