Mommy Prays - and Teaches Me

I wish to Honor my Mom today...

In the Book of Mormon, there is an account of 2000 young men who join the army during a particularly dangerous war.  Their fathers had made an oath and covenat not to take up weapons ever again, and so they could not go themselves to defend their family.  These sons knew the oath that their fathers had taken and chose to go themselves to protect their parents.

On the battle field their Commander, Helaman, asked if they would go against an army that had been chasing after them, knowing that that army was larger than them.  The Humble and Faithful 'Stripling Warriors' Gave their response based on what their parents, particularly their Mothers, had taught them.

"Father (Helaman), behold our God is with us, and he will not suffer that we should fall; then let us go forth; we would not slay our brethren if they would let us alone; therefore let us go,"

"And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying: We do not doubt our mothers knew it."

I also know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's church here on Earth.  My mommy taught me to Pray when I was very young, and now that I am old I know that I can talk with my Heavenly Father whenever I need to, and that He will give answers to my Prayers.

What would i do Without my Mom?

Without my Mom, i would not be here.
Because of Mom, i have no Fear.
Without my Mom, i would be dumb.
Because of Mom, i don't suck my thumb.
Without my Mom, i get upset.
Because of Mom, i get a pet.
Without my Mom, i am confused.
Because of Mom, i watch the news.
Without my Mom, i would probably die.
Because of Mom, i don't get high.
Without my Mom, i wouldn't pray.
Because of Mom, i know the way.

Without my Mom, i would be lost.
To lose my Mom, is too high a cost.
