A Child's Prayer

If you've ever attempted to ask a 6-yr-old what they either did at school or camp today the answer is usually pretty short and vague at best--"We played." However, the past few nights I've encouraged my daughter Landon to break from her typical "Now I lay me down to sleep..." and opt for a "big girl prayer" where she could just talk to God about what's been on her little heart. While listening to these conversations, I really got the opportunity to see and hear what's been rattling around in her little head. Tonight as she kneeled down to pray, she began a 5-minute long devotional asking God traveling mercies for Angela's safe return trip home from Cali. Wooow!

Parents, godparents, aunts, aunties, and uncles, I encourage you all to take a few minutes and listen to what our little ones are saying to God. In fact, it's really not a bad idea if we simply join them in sending up a knee-mail thanking Him for all that He's done and all that He'll do when we rise.
