THE SINGLE PARENTS PRAYER
LORD GRANT ME . . .
Time enough to do all the chores,
join in the games, help with the lessons,
say the night prayers, and much more.
Strength enough to be bread baker
and bread winner,
knee patcher and peace maker,
ball player and billjuggler.
Hands soft enough to hug and to hold,
to tickle and touch,
yet strong enough to pick up
and put away, and then to iron and fold.
Heart enough to share and to care,
to listen and to understand,
and to make this home the best
a single parent can.
