A Mother Who Prayed

I had a Mother who prayed. She taught me of Jesus when I was but small, And prayed for me daily to give Him my all. Thank God for a Mother who prayed!

I had a Mother who prayed. She taught by example to trust in the Lord, And live by the Bible - her spiritual sword.
Thank God for a Mother who prayed!

I had a Mother who prayed. There wasn't much money, but when times were bad, And someone was needy, we shared what we had. Thank God for a Mother who prayed!

I had a Mother who prayed. When I had a problem, and fear made me weak,
I knew on her knees God's help she would seek.
Thank God for a Mother who prayed!

I had a Mother who prayed. And now my own children have needs, so I pray They'll trust in the Savior, and some day might say, "Thank God for a Mother who prayed!"
