A MOTHER'S PRAYER!

My child is hurting, LORD...
Making choices that are not of Your Way!
My child is hurting, LORD...
What can I do... except put my hands together and pray?

My child is hurting, LORD...
Living with consequences untold!
My child is hurting, LORD...
What can I do... but love as You have Loved - though that love brings pain manifold?

My child is hurting, LORD...
Living through a time so grim!
My child is hurting, LORD...
What can I do... but lift this tormented soul, so dear, to my Saviour and trust in Him?

My child is hurting, LORD...
I long to keep away all harm!
My child is hurting, LORD...
What can I do... but invite You to Bring Your Healing Balm?

My child is hurting, LORD...
It was so much easier when childhood really was here!
My child is hurting, LORD...
What can I do with an adult child, but... love - and hand to You my fear?

Is this The Pain Your Parent Heart,
Has Known within my life?
Multiplied a billion fold through centuries untold?
Yet still... You Loved... and Loved... and Loved... and Brought each child back through strife!

Help me, LORD... in days so bleak...
When my child is hurting so...
To continue to lift my hands in to You in prayer,
To trust My Heavenly Father, whose Love I know!

For in prayer... and suplication to You...
For my child I can do something actively!
Though the child and the world may be unaware...
What matters is that my prayer of care is given to Thee!

LORD, in the coming days...
However this works out...
Help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus...
To hear His Victory Shout!

While earthly tools may be used to ensnare...
This child so precious to me...
The battle is in the spiritual realms...
For this soul, so dear, ultimately!

The Battle is Yours, Dear LORD, I know...
But there is such pain and anguish in my heart!
Please... help me daily to lift my child to You in prayer...
To choose to trust You in this awful mess,
please daily send Your Holy Spirit to Bring Your Comfort, Peace and Rest!

Whatever caused my child to choose this way...
Whatever the unmet need...
I pray that its root will be Severed by You...
And Your Love within this child's spirit will become A Reality on which to Feed!

My child is hurting, LORD...
I'm choosing to give You the nod...
Your Will, not mine...
Please Help me "To be still and know that You are God!"
