When Mama Prayed

When Mama Prayed was originally written as a poem by my father after his mother died. Some 30 years after her passing, while driving across the farmlands of Oklahoma to a family gathering, he was inspired to complete his thoughts and transpose the poem into this poignant song ~ I personally relate the song to my own Mother and both my Grandmothers ~ Through the years its message of faith and belief have ministered to the many hearts and souls of those who have heard it.

Some of the Lyrics from When Mama Prayed

“ When Mama prayed ~ the angels up in heaven
Would bow their heads and listen to her prayers
They knew God heard and He would answer
Because her faith in God was real and she believed

When Mama prayed ~ she asked the Lord to guide her
To give her strength and bless our family
So thank you Lord for a loving Mother’s care
And thank you Lord for answers to her prayers ”
