A Prayer For My Children
My children's names, I now lay them in Your hands,
engrave them please, so they can't be erased;
that always all corruption it withstands,
and then, when Satan tempts, please keep them chaste.
You be their Shield, when I must separate,
sustain them in their weakness with Your might.
You know how fiercely them this world can hate,
let not this world's scheming put them to flight.
I do not ask to spare them from all sorrows,
but when alone and frightened, be their Strength.
In Jesus Name, I ask for all to-morrows,
that You will be their trusted Friend, at length.
My children's names, I now lay them in Your hands.
