A Mother's Prayer

Saturday, May 08, 2010

This song came straight from my heart one night
as I prayed over my sleeping daughter.
As I stared at her beautiful frame,
I was just moved to tears
by what an amazing gift from God
she really is.

She was born with neurofibromatosis
and is considered legally blind.
Some would have advised
while she was still in the womb
that I should have had an abortion
because she isn't "perfect".
That would have been a tragedy.

As this song has been passed around
it has been used in many different ways
- pro-life rallies, baby dedications
Mother's Day events, weddings,
and as a simple lullaby sung over a sleeping baby.

My hope is that this song would inspire
all mothers to pray over their babies,
no matter how old,
and to see the value of human life.
