Mama Prayed

Train up a child in the way he
should go, and when he is old,
he will not depart from it.
Pro. 22:6

While I grew up from babe to youth,
'Ere I knew to be afraid,
God placed a hedge aroung me
Because my Mama prayed.

When I got a little older,
And my sinful footsteps strayed,
I turned from all her teachings,
But still my Mama prayed.

As my life went from bad to worse,
What an awful price I paid!
Sometimes it seemed so hopeless,
But still my Mama prayed.

Then the Holy Spirit filled me,
And God's prompting I obeyed;
I repented of my sins
Because my Mama prayed.

Christ Jesus came into my life,
Where ever since, He's stayed;
Who knows where I might be today,
If Mama hadn't prayed?

So lift your children to the Lord,
And like me, they'll be swayed;
They, too will be so thankful,
Because their Mama prayed!
