Parents' Prayer

Lord several years ago we came to you in prayer
Thanking you for binding us together in your care
You knew how much we wanted a brand new life to love
And so you granted to us this blessing from above
When this child came into our lives we gave him back to you
We promised with your help we'd do all we could do
To raise this child and teach him about your love and grace
And you would always give him your strength to run the race
But along the way he got lost and couldn't find his way
Now we come before you once again today
Humbled in your presence please hear us as we pray
Please once again remind him although he has sinned
You're waiting there with open arms to welcome him back in
And Lord while you're at it would you remind him too
When he came into our lives we gave him back to you
Thank you Lord for hearing us and in your name we pray
Very soon we all will have a great reunion day - Amen
