Mother’s Day 2019
By Charles Towne
AND SHE PRAYED, O’, HOW SHE PRAYED!
She prayed that the little boy she was carrying would be just like Huckleberry Finn, and wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles, her prayers were answered!
She continued to pray:
Yes, she continued to pray that you o God would guide, and protect her little Huckleberry friend as he grew,
and her prayers were answered.
Yes, she prayed that You would draw her little boy to you, and though it took time, years of time because evil forces were at work striving for your soul, her prayers were answered.
She prayed, oh how she prayed. for each of her children
He went his way, and she, like any faithful mama, like your mama perhaps, continued to pray.
Then, one day, a day in a lifetime, he surrendered.
Yes, she prayed, and if not for this, more than anything else, what do mothers secretly desire? her prayers were answered.
Yes, because of love she prayed,
And it was enough that she prayed,
Out of love she prayed.
Thank you Papa God, thank you for mama’s prayers, Amen
