A Child's Prayer

Mac said his first prayer all by himself this morning.He's been praying for a while now but mostly just repeats what we tell him to say. He loves to volunteer to pray at meals and family prayer time and I love to hear him.

"Heavenly Father
Thank you for the food (sounds more like Dank you)
Thank you for Daddy to get a job (he means, please help daddy to get a job)
Please bless daddy go to work ( safely)
Please bless daddy sleep in the big bed
In the name of Jesus Christ Amen" (I had to prompt him a little with this)

He must have been thinking of daddy a lot because Zach was already at work by the time we got up this morning. He leaves at 7:00am

  1. Precious! Warms my heart to hear a little child say his or her prayers and to bless the food.

  2. It's a wonderful prayer, and I "thank you for daddy to get a job," too.... k, madison (anonymous me)
