A Mother’s Prayer

A Mother’s Prayer

Lord, I ask for you now for strength

To be the mom they really need

I ask you to guide and light my way

And for courage to go through the day

 

Please help me, Lord, to raise my kids

KIDS, TELL ME WHO JUST DID THIS!!

Sorry, Lord, now I’m back

The children started an attack

 

Give me patience, make me kind

Remember to give extra smiles

DON’T POKE YOUR SISTER, WHAT DID I JUST SAY?

Lord, I need more strength today

 

NOT THE KITCHEN; COME BACK IN HERE

Lord, I need to feel you near. 

I want to be filled with grace

DON’T THROW FLIP FLOPS AT HIS FACE

 

Lord, you know just what I need

to become the mom I need to be

Direct me according to your will

WHAT IN THE WORLD DID YOU JUST SPILL?

 

I’m not perfect, but I try

To be the mom they need to thrive

I want to be a godly mother

But she won’t stop smacking her brother

 

So excuse me, God, for just one sec

To separate these adorable wrecks

I’ll catch up with you tonight

Maybe they’ll be too tired to fight

 

Amen.
