This Mother's Prayer


Dear God, please bless my sons today
And give them what they need...
For You knew them and fashioned them
Before they were yet seed.
And You know what it is to give
Far better, Lord, than I...
And they were Yours before, yet, mine,
a fact I can't deny.
Thank You, Lord for entrusting me
with these, Your precious ones
And give them what You know they need
Yes, God please bless my sons.

Amen

How lovely to pray for your sons. It is so wonderful and good to ask the Lord to protect and bless them. We always have to thank God for the joys he brought into our lives - namely our children.

CARIBQUEEN, thank you. My sons are all grown today, but after a conversation with the oldest yesterday I wrote this, because, he asked me to pray and this is what came out!

Really enjoyed this beauty and will definitely use it for myself. I have two of my own, 24 and 22. Sometimes I worry about them more now than when they were little. I send my worries away to God and it works every time. Bless you tender lady heart

Inspiring and mirrors what your heart truly desires.You ask the Lord what they need and not what they want.

Duffsmom, Thank you!

Fossillady, my sons are 34, 33, and 30...and I pray more today for them than ever before...! Thank you, God bless you and your kids!

jensavacion, its a funny thing...I sometimes don't know what I need, so it is crazy to think I know what they need! I pray for God to have His Way within us all and that is the best bet any day! Thanks!

..well there is nothing like a mother's unconditional love - my mum was my best friend - and in many ways she made me the man that I am today .......

Thank you, Paul, I hope that is true...I know God surely blessed me with them...they have been my greatest "teachers"!

Tndr- Funny how that seems to happen, we are responsible for making sure they are taught all that they need to know in life in order to get by, yet they always seem to teach us things we never thought to search out the answers for. -Paul

Paul, it is, indeed, funny how that happens!
