Mamas Prayers
Debra Shepherd / Quint Shepherd Music BMI

The prayers that mama prayed when I was just a child
would cause me to stop playing and listen for a while
Sometimes her heart was broken but then she would rejoice
It seemed I could feel power coming from mama’s voice

The prayers that mama prayed could be why I’m here today
The times she called my name heaven’s prayer bells rang
She prayed so loud and clear every word sincere
I thank God everyday for the prayers that mama prayed.

And now that I am older my mind goes back to then
If not for a praying mother just how things might have been
She taught me to love Jesus to serve Him day by day
She taught me how important it is for me to pray.
