Mother’s prayer protects daughter

One morning a few years ago, I woke up very early. It was unusual for me to be wide awake at that hour. Instead of wondering why, however, I was inspired to pray.

I silently repeated a poem by Mary Baker Eddy titled “Mother’s Evening Prayer.” The first verse reads:

O gentle presence, peace and joy and power; 
O Life divine, that owns each waiting hour, 
Thou Love that guards the nestling’s faltering flight! 
Keep Thou my child on upward wing tonight. 
(Poems, p. 4)
