Prayer to My Granddaughter
by Emma Williams
To my Granddaughter
I saw you tears, I feel your sorrow
Now be still and let the Lord do His will
Lord I lift this special woman before you
Father you know she is very special
Hold her tight to your chest
Make her award of your presence and love at all times
May your arms embrace her at all times
Thank you, Lord for the privilege of knowing and loving her
I thank you in Jesus name...Amen!!
