Last night during family devotions I had to laugh when it came time for the kids to pray

J-Bell--"Lord, thank you for the nice weather, even though it was a little too hot... And please help me to stop complaining..." (she was not even noticing she was complaining in her prayer)

J-Bird--"Lord, thanks for the day. And help J-Bell stop being so bossy when she's babysitting..."

Rara found a shortcut so she doesn't have to think about prayer requests..."Lord, help everyone who needs help..."

Desti has now started using this tactic too.

Who couldn't enjoy kids like these?

Oh! I always loved listening to the little ones pray. My niece was two and would look around the room and say thank you for the chairs, thank you for the lights, thank you for the doors, etc. You get the idea. And then after five or more minutes of this she would end big and loud with AMEN! Precious!

Kids' prayers are great. Here's one of my faves

"Dear God, thank you for everything and everyone and help everyone everywhere who needs help and forgive all of my sins every time."

Every is such a convenient word.

That is precious!

Bloglines must be messing up on me! Hasn't been telling me you have new stuff out!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!
