A Mother’s Day Poem by Ruth Bell Graham

May 11, 2014

Categories: Ruth Bell Graham


Listen, Lord,

a mother’s praying

low and quiet:

listen, please.

Listen what her tears

are saying,

see her heart

upon its knees;

lift the load

from her bowed shoulders

till she sees

and understands,

You, Who hold

the worlds together,

hold her problems

in Your hands.

 
from “Clouds are the Dust of His Feet” by Ruth Bell Graham (1992, Crossway Books)
