A Child's Prayer

We've been teaching Lily how to say prayer for almost a year now. Mostly she says the prayers over the meals and they are very simple and always the same. Lately something has clicked and she has started praying for different things during our meal prayers. It started when we all had the flu and she started praying for us to feel better. Then she started praying that Lily and Arya will have good sleep. :) (Can you tell what Luke and I pray for all the time?) This morning's went like this:

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank thee for the food, please bless the food, please bless that Santa will bring Lily presents, bless that Santa will bring Arya presents, bless that Santa will bring Mommy presents, and bless that Santa will bring daddy presents, in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

It's amazing how children connect things sometimes! It brought a smile to my face as I said AMEN!

  1. That is great! I love it. Especially because when she's praying for presents, you know she is really praying for the desire of her heart!!
