It comes to pass that, things in life are truly not in our control. We don't have control on weather someone lives or if someone dies. The things that we do and that we can control is how we treat our fellow man. We can comfort, love, teach and give to any that cross our paths. You may never know if what you said was an influence on some one's life or a detriment to some one's life. We must give respect to the grandmothers, mothers, fathers, sisters, uncles out there who are working hard to raise the young in our folds. I am saying a special mothers prayer for those young souls who need that added nurturing. The ones who slip through the cracks. The ones who have lost a love one. That love missing is very difficult to contend with. This prayer goes out to you.
O, Lord of mercy,
Bless these little ones
who have lost a parent.
You know how important
A parent is
In the life of a child:
A guide, a friend,
A role model, a teacher,
A tutor, a nurse,
A source of love and good will;
The one who lets a child crawl into their bed
During a midnight thunderstorm;
The one who holds the child’s head during an illness;
The one who changes the bedding in the middle of the night
when the child has gotten sick on his covers
Place good people in their lives
To fill the heart’s empty places
Where the parents’ love once resided.
Enter their lives,
Direct their steps,
And lead them
To the Perfect Parent
The Divine Father-Mother
Who will love them
In Jesus’ name.
