I Pray for My Son

I Pray For My Son...
I pray that  my son would make
 his heavenly father proud.
May the lifestyle he chooses
not be "under a dark cloud."
May the choices he makes
 be God's perfect will.
May God's promises
in his life be fulfilled.
May he daily look to God
for much needed direction.
And yield to the Holy Spirit
 for divine correction.
In the path of life... May he listen
 to God's voice
Above everything ese...
May God be his first choice!
May the love of his parents
be placed on his heart.
So the Godly principles he was taught... 
Won't depart!
May he seek God's word for much
 needed wisdom & advice.
And neglect the false idols of this world,
 without thinking twice.
May God's word be the foundation
of everything he does.
Knowing that it is he,
 whom his heavenly father loves.
As you keep him Lord in your
 tender mercy and care.
May he never forget the
awesome power of prayer!
Thank you Jesus for my
wonderful son indeed.
For it's you, oh Lord...
that is all he'll ever need!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
