A Mothers Prayer

Written by: Linda Etling

My children are almost grown now Lord The teen years belong to all three We have so many plans for them But the greatest to follow thee. Oh Lord please surround each one of them with your loving gracious arms Protect them from this wicked world Keep them from all harm Love them though they don't see the value Of daily living for thee They know the truth and believe in you But the devil is turning the key Put walls around to keep them close And never let them go Walk with them through all their life Oh I pray your love they know Make me Lord know just what to say So they will hear each word That you're the only answer to life Oh let their hearts be stirred I 'm just a mom down here on earth we taught them of your love I hand them over to you my King Send wisdom from above At this age I feel so helpless Lord The dangers around them flow But Lord I know you care for them Please beside them go Forgive me where I have failed To teach them more of you Take over Lord where I am weak Give them life brand new Remember Lord the day they were born I look to you above I gave them to you when each arrived They are yours with all my love! In your precious name I pray amen............
