~ A Mother & Father's Prayer ~


A Mother And Father's Prayer

I know You're listening, as I lay me down to sleep
It's not for me I ask, but my children's souls to keep
It seems the world is going crazy
And though I need to do my share
Could You please take them under wing
Watch over them especially
Keeping them safe from everything
This is a Mother's Prayer

I know You're listening in the silence of this night
The news is blistering but I hold on to Your light
And though there's darkness all around us
By my faith I know You're there
Give me the strength to lead the way
Send me the words I need to say
Use me to guide them day by day
This is a Father's Prayer

I know I can't do this by myself
I thank You for your help

I know You're listening, so I know I'm not alone
I feel You're here with me, as we all face the unknown
Could You return us to your Garden
Where no one's hurt and no one's scared
Keep us from pride and bitterness
Keep us so close we won't forget
Teach us to love as You love
This is a Mother's prayer, this is a Father's prayer
Teach us to love as You love
This is a Mother's, Father's prayer
