"If Jesus Christ be God and died for me,
then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him."

A Mother's Prayer by Kristyn Getty

Hello precious sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ,

I pray your week has been filled with God's hope in all things and Christ's strength to work all things for the glory of the Father.

I came across this beautiful song and music video from Keith & Kristyn Getty (www.gettymusic.com) about "A Mother's Prayer". I absolutely love it and wanted to share it with all of you hoping it'll bless you and as much (if not more than) it blessed me.

May we all, as mother's remember that our children are not our own, but they are the precious creation of our Creator God and one day, we will have to answer for all that we chose or didn't choose for their lives. May this truth humble us and cause us to remain ever prayerfully and steadfast in the Word of the Lord, so that we may be most pleasing to God Almighty in all we do.

Remember sister, always point your children to Christ through word and deed rather than desire to point them to you.

Lyrics are below if you want to sing along and make this your prayer too. ♥



Before you close your eyes to sleep
I have a promise still to keep
As I hold you in my arms.
I pray your little frame grows strong
And that faith takes hold while you are young;
This is my prayer for you.

Hold my hand;
I'll teach you the Way to go.
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years,
May you trust Him ‘til the end.
May you trust Him in the end.

This world is not as it should be,
But the Savior opens eyes to see
All that's beautiful and true.
Oh may His light fill all you are
And the jewel of wisdom crown your heart;
This is my prayer for you.

Hold my hand;
I'll teach you the Way to go.
Through the joys, through the tears,
The journey of these years,
He is with us ‘til the end.
He is faithful ‘til the end.

You'll travel where my arms won't reach
As the road will rise to lead your feet
On a journey of your own.
May my mistakes not hinder you
But His grace remain and guide you through;
This is my prayer for you.

Take His hand
And go where He calls you to.
And whatever comes, seek Him
With all your heart;
This will be my prayer for you.
mmmm Father, hear my ceaseless prayer;
Oh keep her in your care.
