A Prayer For Mama
My dear sweet heavenly father, we come to you today with faith and hope; we ask to send an angel Mama’s way.
We know her time has come and you’ve called her home to stroll across the streets of gold where other angels roam. It’s hard to watch her suffer and slowly fade away. Help us, God, to understand; give us strength, we pray.
She means so much to all of us; forgive us for our tears. Life will never be the same without her presence here.
Our mother is an angel; she taught us to be fearless; she taught us how to love and told us about you, Lord, and the heaven up above.
When she crosses over and steps into the light, tell her that we love her and when the time is right, meet us at the pearly gates where everything’s brand new. We’ll walk across God’s meadow lands where skies are always blue.
Somewhere beyond the sunset every now and then, we pray she watches over us until we meet again.
