Prayer of a Father


our generation of children are going astray
to hung down pants and children
who don’t want to obey
some mothers are there
but there's nothing like having a father’s prayer

one who is concerned and
there who really cares
to recapture our children from the enemy’s snares

a father that doesn’t run
from the responsibility
of having a daughter or a son

a prayer of a father
covers and protects
it’s a spiritual sound covering which doesn’t neglect

whether near or far
a father's prayer
means more than his car

it shows his love
that no matter what
when he kneels in righteous prayer
it’s a sign that echoes
to our Heavenly Father's Chair

our children or crying and
living with an inner-dying
hidden anger, peer-pressure, and
wickedness danger

don't let myspace be your child's
best friend, ipods, and cell phones
can never take the place
of a human loving touch
by a fatherly face

i admonish you to keep the faith
trust God for your child that
he or she doesn't go astray

thank God for the Church
and ministries not are not corrupt
but know this father that your
first call of God is to sponsor
your child without interrupt

Prayer of a Father
