~ When Mothers Pray ~

He was just a little tyke
Two years old or maybe three
Playing on the kitchen floor
Staying kind of close to me.

I watched him as he ran his car
Back and forth in front of me.
And suddenly my heart cried out
"Dear Lord, I give this child to Thee."

My thought went back to Hannah
As in the Bible we are told
Took her little son, Samuel, to the temple
Where she presented him to the Lord.

Then I knelt down and picked him up
And as I held him quiet and still
I prayed, "Dear Lord, this child I give to You
To instill in him Your perfect will."

PS:   Today this 'little tyke' is the pastor of Fellowship
Baptist Church and Christian Academy, Jackson-
ville, NC.  He signs all his correspondence,
"Rich in the Lord in NC"--- and that he is!
