Grandfather’s Prayer (3/8/13)

Thank you father for the children that look up to me
They are so small and innocent always so care free

The desire of my heart is for them to know and love you
To realize that you knew each one before they were born

You have a purpose for each tiny life
May they find you early on to help with the strife

I cannot imagine what temptations they will face
As I look at what is in the world today
No one to look up to and no safe place to play

My father, I know that you love them more than I
So please take care of them where I will not cry

Bless them dear god and keep them from harm
May they serve you daily
Keep your loving arms around them
Allow each one to feel your love so warm
