This is a poem written for my Granddaughter. I hope everyone that reads it will join me in praying for her and all other little children who today seem to be on a too quick track toward adulthood.
She’s four-years old, going on fifteen
And I pray for her young soul;
May God lead her to His side
And toward His eternal goal.
So much temptation faces her
As she grows up so fast;
I pray Lord she can put you first
And other pleasures last.
Lord somehow lead this little girl
So her worldly, too wise ways
Will not bring her to folly
In her upcoming days.
I know the world she faces—
It is not the one I knew—
But Lord I pray you’ll lead her
And let her, unscathed, come through.
In the name of Lord Jesus, I pray,
