I Pray for My Children...

 I Pray For My Children…


As a parent, having raised my kids..

I wanted to be a good example in how I lived.


Disappointments and failures…

 I’ve had my share!

I still love them and will always care!


I didn’t want to “run away,”

like many do…

I want to be there to tell them;

 “I love you!”


I did my best to give them a God

 given dedication…

And to help them in a

Bible based education.


Now the years have passed

 and my kids are grown…

Very soon, they’ll all be out of  the home.


I pray for God’s blessing

 in their days ahead.

May the Bible be their source

of “daily bread.”


I pray that the Lord will guide

 their every step…

May a love for God in their

hearts be kept!


Lord, please keep them from evil and harm…

And keep them safe and secure

 in your arms!


I pray that one day in heaven, I will see...

All my kids with me...  For eternity!

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!
