If you’re a mother like me, I’m sure you have your own hopes and dreams, especially during these times of uncertainty and fear (most especially as the Philippines holds its elections tomorrow — Lord, help and guide us!). I was honored to be able to share part of my own hopes and dreams on Channel NewsAsia, a Singaporean TV channel, and I’m sharing the clip below.
May our hopes, dreams and wishes for our kids, our families, our country come true, according to God’s will and plan! Mama Mary, we consecrate ourselves and our nation to you and your most precious Son!
A Mother’s Prayer
Lord, give me strength just for today
To lead my children in Your way;
Oh, give me wisdom, Lord, and grace
To show to them Your precious face!
And help me, Lord, to teach them, too,
The things of Christ so rich and true,
Just let them see in me, dear Lord,
Your holiness in life and word.
Keep me from sinning with my tongue,
From harsh, quick words that might have stung
Their tender hearts that trust me so
And watch to see which way I go.
Dear Father, keep my thoughts so pure
That they will always know for sure
My Lord has led me all the way,
Lord, grant my prayer just for today.
