Daily Prayers

Prayer is Love, I want to Love

A Mother’s Prayer

Small Red-coloured Cross

Dear Lord, it’s such a hectic day,
with little time to stop and pray.
For life’s been anything but calm,
since You called me to be a mom.
Running errands, matching socks,
building dreams with matching blocks.
Cooking, cleaning and finding shoes
and other stuff that children lose.
Fitting lids on bottled bugs,
wiping tears and giving hugs.
A stack of last week’s mail to read –
so where’s the quiet time I need?
Yet, when I steal a moment,
Lord, just at the sink or ironing board,
to ask the blessings of Your grace,
I see then, in my small one’s face,
that You have blessed me all the while-
and I stoop to kiss… that precious smile.
