I Prayed For You Today

I prayed for you today.

I prayed for you today.
I couldn’t be there,
But I prayed for you today.

Your mother’s service –
For peace for you and your brother.
That God would lift you up,
That God would give you comfort.

I prayed for those presiding –
That they would say
Just the right words
To help and bless you.

I prayed thanking God
For your mother’s life,
And her kindness and
Faithfulness to Him.

I prayed thanking God
For sending His Son
So your mother can
Be with Him.

I prayed for you today.
I know He will answer
And comfort you
In every way.

I prayed for you today.
