“Father to Son”

by Lori Howell Thompson


Oh! Lord, I am coming to you

as Father to Father and Son to Son,

for your guidance and wisdom.

You know how much it hurts when you

see your child walking in pain and blindness,

be the light to guide my son through this darkness.

Bless him with your mercy and grace,

he is fragile and needs your gentle embrace.

“Rest assured my son, the love that I give you,

is the same love that will carry him through,

It’s our love, Father to Father and Son to Son!”
