A Mother’s Prayer
By Dana Boutwell

 

Every morning as I wake
Being blessed without one ache
I think of you and plan my day
Knowing that God will show the way
I pray that you will be strong
Until the day that we will belong
Together in each others clutches
Where harm cannot touch us
Mommy tries not to be emotional and cry
Because it leads me to ask, “WHY?”
I know that the answer is not to be found
Until I hear the undeniable sound
Of my Father in heaven reminding me
That He has indeed heard my plea
“Be still and wait!” He relays
“While I prepare you for the final phase
The moment your sons will be reunited unto you
Will be the answer of your prayer come true!”
Oh how I cannot wait for that day
Because with them I am so eager to play
My days are long and lonely at times
But I am thankful as I sit and write these rhymes
God is indeed working on our behalf
Preparing us for the second half
The Lord promised never to leave nor forsake me
And with that assurance I know I can be
The mommy that He Himself has prepared
To give Brandon and Dylan the life that He declared.
Lord, I thank you for moments like this
When I can rest in the peace I dare not miss
You have brought me through so much thus far
And all the events are actually quite bizarre
I know that You have a perfect plan
And desire that I become Your number one fan
To You I give all the glory
For without You there would be no end to this story
The end is near and that I know
Because You continually show
Your love to me each day more clearly
The love I need and want so sincerely.
My Lord, to You each day I pray
Guide Brandon and Dylan’s way
Protect, Father, them as they sleep
And hover over them as David his sheep
Comfort, nurture, love and hugs they need
And I ask that You give them the ability to succeed
Grant them wisdom, understanding, knowledge and strength
Provide them with abilities at length
With my confidence in You I know
That they will day by day grow
To be the Godly men You have ordained
Empower them continually as they are youthfully trained
Prepare me, Lord, to be their guide
So one day they can shamelessly decide
That Your ways are better than other ways
And You they will forever praise
You who is without blemish or spot
Knowing that they were bought
By the price of Your dear Son
Who is Lord, “The Holy One!”
Into Your hands continually I place
The ones that I so long to embrace
To You alone they belong
Where they will grow to be so strong
Be the light they daily need
Help them, Lord, to plant every seed
As they grow with water and sunshine
Continually affirm within them their flawless design
The warmth, security and freedoms You have provided
Materialized by being eagerly guided
By Your gentle voice and caring hand
That has given me, without fail, the strength to stand
Your presence is one without definition
Lord, I thank You for this time of transition
Where three captivated hearts have become more near
Reinforced by every painful or comforting tear
The closeness that we feel at this hour
Was learned by example from our Strong Tower
You have brought to clear realization
The splendor of Your wondrous creation
Thank You, Lord, for showing to me
How to love on bended knee
The promises that You have brought to pass
Shows of a love that will forever last
I thank You again …
Amen.
