A Mother's Prayer


My mom bought this beautiful plaque for me a few years ago.  I do not know who the author is but the prayer on it is absolutely beautiful:


Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray for the wisdom and the sight
To teach my children wrong from right.

I pray for strength and time to spare
With endless love to show I care.

I pray for patience to understand
My children and their endless demands.

I pray for the knowledge to impart
Faith in Your Word from the very start.

I pray for Your guidance in my life
That my children's lives are free from strife.

I pray for Your love and charity
That they learn kindness and humility.

I pray for Your guidance from above
That my children are graced in Your love.

I pray for these things so my children know
That You are with them wherever they go.

For all of these things I humbly pray
As you guard my children along life's way. 


  1. What a beautiful pray. I'd love to share that on Mother's Day on my blog. May I? I would link back to you of course. Thank-you for adding me as a friend on Christian Homeschool Hub.

  2. thanks, Debbie, for posting this lovely prayer. My daughter, who is pregnant with her first child, will enjoy this, too. blessings, k

  3. Thank you both for your kind words. I would love for you to share it on your blog, it's too beautiful to be kept hidden. That's also very kind of you to link back to me. It's much appreciated!
