Mama’s Plea My precious Lord, I beg of thee open your heart, and hear my plea. For a time of selfishness is near and I beg you Lord my prayer to hear There must have been a reason for the child beneath my breast. And if you’ll only give him to me, I promise to do the rest You see we’ve already grown to love him, as he moves with life each day. And as he moves within my body he seems as if to say It won’t be long, I’ll be there soon, to meet all my family I’m growing stronger every day, together, mom and me Mom slowed down, she doesn’t do much you see Somehow I think the reason must be because of me. When once her words were soft and light, now they tremble in fear. It seems somethings going to happen, perhaps my time is near, they are doing tests with mommy, they check me out from head to toe. And I heard the doctor tell her, we simply just don’t know. I can hear her talking to someone, her voice is full with fear. I think that it is you God, surely you can hear? Can you hear her now? Do you hear her plea? It seems that she is asking for a gift for me, A happy home with lots of love she’s begging of you now. God, please make my mommy happy, please help her out somehow. The shaking stopped, she’s standing now, things are about the same, But the last words she spoke to you were I pray in Jesus name. -Teri Pratt

Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” I'm praying for you. With time may God mend and heal your hearts until you reunite with your little one in Heaven. I look forward to meeting Donovan when I arrive in Heaven. Love you!
