My Mother's Day Rose



Lord, I was given a rose on Mother's Day,

But I'm not a mother in the world's eyes.

I may not have children,

I may not be married,

I may have no one to call me mother.

But Lord,even tho I may not have children would You help me be a mother to the children who cross my path?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would You help me encourage the struggling person You bring my way?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would You help me be a prayer warrior for those around me,the lost and the troubled?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would You season my words with wisdom that I may speak words in due season?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would you help me be loyal and upright that others can safely trust in me?

Lord,even tho I may not be a mother would You teach me how to be a good steward that I might have to give to those in need?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would You give me discernment that I may sense the leading of Your Spirit and be a vessel at Your disposal?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would You help my tongue to speak words to build up and not tear down?

Lord,even tho I may not have children would You enable me to treat all with respect no matter how disagreeable they may be?

Lord,even tho I may have no children would You give me a vision and a purpose to fulfill?

Lord,even tho I may have no children would You anoint my touch to strengthen, encourage, and love those around me?

Lord,even tho I may have no children would You let Your joy overflow the cup of my heart and light up my life that all who notice would be drawn to You?

Lord,even tho I may have no children would You saturate me with peace that it might give rest to the weary who's lives brush mine?

Lord,even tho I may have no children would You let Your love overflow like a balm of healing to the hurting and soften the heart of the hardened?

Lord,even tho I may have no children would You enable my dedication to You to be spilled over in service to others?

Lord,even tho I may have no children

Or be seen as a mother in the world's eyes;

I may have no children,

I may not be married,

I may have no one to call me mother;

But Lord,

Would You let me shed some fragrance in a storm-filled life today?

Would You let me shed some beauty in a scarred, trashed life today?

Would You let me shed some hope in a broken, hurting life today?

Please Lord,would You just let me be a rose in someone's life today?
