A Mother Who Prays

Prayer changes lives ~ If your mother is no longer with you and she prayed for you, it made a difference in your life. If you have children - adult or small, pray every day for them, you might be the only one who is.



Some have had kings in their lineage,
Some to whom honor was paid.
Not blest of my ancestors - but,
I have a mother who prays.

I have a mother who prays for me
And pleads with the Lord every day for me.
Oh what a difference it makes for me - 
I have a mother who prays.

Some have worldly success
And trust in riches they've made - 
This is my surest asset,
I have a mother who prays.

My mother's prayers cannot save me,
Only mine can avail;
But mother introduced me to Someone - 
Someone who never could fail.

Oh yes..I have a mother who prays for me
And pleads with the Lord every day for me.
O what a difference it makes for me - 
I have a mother who prays.

Have a blessed day friends.

That is a dear poem and reminds me of the Abraham Lincoln quote that goes around at this time of year. While a mother's prayers can not stand in for our own, I know that when life is new and tender, young and growing, older and in need, a mother's prayers are precious and important. Thank you for the reminder to keep on praying!
