PRAYED FOR

My mother’s prayers how precious!

Followed me through life!

Continued on after she died

Alleviating strife!

.

.

Those prayers she prayed so powerful,

Bathed with her tears and cry’s

Continued even after her death,

No longer tearful eyes!

.

.

While bullets thudded, hissed, and sang

Around and over me

Bombs blasted shrapnel all around

A fist-sized piece hit the tree—

.

.

Just a foot above my head

And landed on my knee.

It was passed around for everyone

To handle and to see!

.

.

That is why my tag, Sky Pilot

And Padre got around.

Along with other narrow scrapes,

They thought me heaven bound.

.

.

Preacher, one Jewish boy, bragged,

“I am atheist even now

With bullets flying all around!”

How long would God allow?

.

.

So mother’s prayers have followed,

Oh, yes!  I know it is true!

My feet are planted firmly

And blessings now accrue!

.

.

How can I help but pray for my

Kids and all the grand’s?

And, of course, the grand kids, too. (*)

Obeying God’s command!

.

.

I cannot quit this prayer life

Nor am I so inclined!

Must keep on raising upward

To hold my peace of mind!

.

.

Somehow by faith I see God’s hand

Continues His work!

And since He is working in each life

I cannot ever shirk!

.

.

It is my responsibility

As a parent, this I know,

As my mother’s prayers have followed me

No other way to go!

.

.

Kids remember you are prayed for!

Just one way for you now,

No place for you but heaven!

You will!  You must allow!

.

.

Must allow God’s working in you!

Say, yes!  Yes to His Will!

Grandma and grandpa (great)

Are praying for you still!

.

.

(*) Sorry forgot the great-grand’s but not in prayers!
