A Prayer For Moms

I was watching a TV show  
And told my child to ‘Shhhsh’
Then later it occurred to me  
How early in life we push
The ones we love away from us  
And wonder when they’ve grown
Why is it that they won’t allow  
What they’re feeling to be known?
You see she was trying to share  
Something new with me that day,
I wonder what went through her mind  
As she was ‘shewed’ away
I don’t remember her storming off  
Or acting all dejected…
The way that I would have done  
If I had been the one rejected.
So precious is that child’s heart  
So gracious and forgiving
So fresh from God, so full of love  
With such a zest for living
Lord, renew in me that tender heart 
 I see within my child
Open my ears so I can hear  
With a heart that’s undefiled.
Lord help me to focus on their thoughts
 So that I will joyfully listen
As you do for me when I speak  
There’s not one thing  you’re missing
Let them see how deeply I care 
 About everything they do
Let them see within my eyes  
A perfect reflection of YOU.


  1. This has always been one of my favorite ones(of the many). I should read this one every morning, as soon as I get out of bed. So honest.

  2. I know - I write alot too. It comes into my head and I have to write it down- it flows from my mind and heart to m fingers and wont stop until I am done. The words are not mine I know this for sure - they are definetly insprired by the Holy Spirit. Praise God! Merry Christmas to all!
