Grandmother’s Prayer

Here is a prayer for all grandmothers’ children and grandchildren, big or small, wherever they may be:

O’ Lord watch over my children
help them to grow each day in grace
guide their steps in every direction
so they will master whatever they face

Lord feed them when they hunger 
and supply their every need
let them know that you are there
to help them to succeed

Lord help them to seek for wisdom
so it will help them in life to cope
when things become too hard to bear
it will give them a little more hope

Now Lord seal this prayer in Heaven
let it follow them wherever they go
for I desire the best for them
and behold the seeds, that they will sow

also this prayer goes out for others
for their children you will also keep
and allow them to grow under your safety
while we at times are sleep

    Catherine, I love the poem, also. Thank you for sharing your idea for a prayer card insert and for taking the time to comment.

    I personally think this would be a great prayer card “insert” added to certain congratulatory cards that Hallmark sells in their religious birth announcements for grandparents! I love it!

    I use this prayer every day. I add the word “pets” with the word grandchildren so I can get them blessed too. Great prayer. Thank you
