Our Prayer for RJ

Awww, love is everywhere I go. This is why February is my favorite month (next to December). I love our themes for this month as they bring back memories. We have the “first kilig moment” theme on Couple’s Corner, “stupidest thing we did for love” on Girls Talk and now on Mommy Moments “our favorite love song”.

I have many favorite love songs, depends to whom I will dedicate the song. If it is for Rhonnel, I love “The Love of My Life” by Darla Day and if it is for RJ, then this is my favorite, “A Mother’s Prayer” by Rachel Aldrous. I made and featured this video last year as my gift to RJ on her 8th birthday. Some of you may have not seen it yet so I decided to share it again here.

 

A Mother’s Prayer
by: Rachel Aldrous
My sweet baby on loan from above.
No better treasure could I more love.
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say:
May you grow up to serve Him all of your days.
May He lead you and guide you in all of your ways.
May His hand bless your future with friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth and not grow up too fast
I stare in wonder at your tiny frame.
Just to think that God knows you by name.
He knows every hair on your beautiful head.
He knows your thoughts before they are said.
May you grow up to serve Him all of your days
May He lead you and guide you in all of your ways.
May His Hand bless your future with friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth and not grow up too fast.
May God grant you peace in the midst of a storm.
May God give you strength even when you’re forlorn.
May you answer the door when Jesus comes knocking.
May wisdom guide when your mouth is talking.
May discretion protect you and keep you pure.
May you never stumble or fall for a lure.
May your heart remain humble to the very end.
May uprightness and truth be what you defend.
May the world not ensnare or change who you are.
May the light that’s within you shine like the stars.
May angels surround you body, spirit, mind.
May favor and peace be yours to find.
May rejection and pain never reach you.
May your spirit grow bold for what you’re called to.
May you grow up to serve Him all of your days
May He lead you and guide you in all of your ways
May His Hand bless your future with friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth and not grow up too fast.
As you rest in God’s care I will rest, too.
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you.
Amen
I love you, Mommy…
