Prayer to a heart of lowly love
Opens the gate of heaven above
A prayer is God’s high dwelling place
Wherein His children see His face
From earth to heaven we build a stair
The name by which we call it prayer
Prayer is the gracious Father’s knee
On it the child climbs lovingly
Love’s rain, the Spirit’s holy ray
And tears of joy are theirs who pray
To walk with God, to feel His kiss
Yea prayer His servant owns is this.
Grandparents Day Prayer
Loving God, You have given us the wondrous gift of grandparents. Your gracious love is reflected in their love and care for us. We thank You, Lord, for the surprises grandparents give, for our things and our problems that they fix, for the stories they share. We thank You, Lord, for the ways our grandparents spoil us, for the celebrations they never forget, and for all the snuggles they give. We thank You for giving us grandparents to share their wisdom to listen to us, to be there loving us.
