When it comes to getting down on your knees and praying as earnestly as you possibly can, nothing beats the prayer of a mother. A mother usually prays for a thousand things. However, if there are two things that make it to the top of her list of requests, they have got to be requests made to be a good mother and requests made for the welfare of her children. Such is the love a mother, the kind of love that can place 'another' before 'self'. It's no wonder then why the love a mother has for her child makes for the truest of the true. If you are looking to understand better the love of a mother, poetry is what you need. 'A Mother's Prayer' just happens to be the perfect poem to help you understand better the care and concern a mother showers onto her offspring. Examine the poem, try making sense out of it and before you know it, your mother may be the only person who matters to you, if she doesn't already!
Please find below the captivating words that add body to the poem "A Mother's Prayer" by Mary A. Loberg.
A Mother's Prayer
Help me dear Lord, as a mother, I pray
And bless these hands folded in prayer today;
May they be ever strong as they guide, as they teach,
Beings never too far for a child to reach.
May they never, with selfishness, try to dissuade,
Nor too quickly punish, nor too slowly aid.
May they point out the pleasures in laughter and song,
And may they show, wisely, the right from the wrong,
So that one day I'll know that I've helped all I can
To make her a woman, to make him a man.
