I Pray for My Children and Family

I Pray for My Children and Family too!


I was talking with my children just the other day…

I was almost “at a loss,”  for the words to say!


I was praying that somehow they’d understand…

Christ is our solid rock!  All else is ”sinking sand!”


I encouraged them to daily read

 the Bible and to prepare.

To what’s happening now… 

So they’re not caught “unaware.”


I shared with them what it means to

seek God’s holy ways…

No matter what others tell them… 

Or what they might say!


When it comes to God… 

May his will be understood…

As one they will grow unto adulthood


May God’s word guard their heart

and help it to be pure!

In the arms of Jesus, may their life

be strong  and secure!


May the love of Jesus bind

their hearts as one…

And be a blessing to my daughters and sons!


As their parent.  It is my desire

 to strongly express…

For all of my family.  I wish for God’s very best!


HIS best can be found in his word

and the son that he’s given…

May this be the very foundation

 on which we’re livin.’!


May Jesus Christ be the focus

of everything we do!

May our lives be en expression

of “I LOVE YOU!”


May God’s peace and words

of wisdom fill our minds…

And may his cords of love be

what forever binds!

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!
