“A Child’s Prayer”

“A Child’s Prayer” by Elena Hirst Call

Heavenly Mother,

Are you really there

And do you hear and answer every child’s prayer

I feel that heaven is far away

But some feel it close around them as they pray

Heavenly Mother

I remember now

Something Eliza told us kindly long ago

We have a Mother and Father there

Mother in heaven help me know you care

Pray, She is there

Speak, she is listening

You are Her child

Her love now surrounds you

She hears your prayers

She loves Her children

Of such is the kingdom

The kingdom of heav’n
