Then Daddy Prayed
Mama told us the exciting news.
Another sibling was on its way.
Our family was so excited
As we planned for that future day
Then Mama became sick
Needing extra special care.
So, to a cabin by a lake we went
For some family time there
Mama became sick and could not move.
Seeing her helpless filled us with fears.
We did all we could to help
While trying to hold back our tears.
While Mama was in the hospital
We knew not to despair,
For God had some nice doctors
And nurses giving her tender care.
Then back at home one night
They asked if we had been afraid.
After a moment, we answered them,
“Yes, but then Daddy prayed.”
