A Mother’s Prayer

This is a beautiful music video by the Gettys. You know a video resonates emotionally when you can recall your own “scenes” similar to the ones you watch. I can imagine carrying Eden in similar ways, reading to her, etc. It’s an encouragement and challenge to us as parents to keep praying for Eden her whole life.

The lyrics:

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 hops 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 years
The journey of these years
May you trust Him till the end
May you trust Him in the end

This world is not as it should be
But the Saviour opens eyes to see
All that’s beautiful and true
Oh may His light fill all you are
And the jewel of wisdom crowns 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 is till the end
He is faithful till the end

You’ll travel where my arms won’t reach
As the road will rise and lead your feet
On a journey of your own
May my mistakes to 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

Father hear my ceaseless prayer
Oh keep her in your care
