sweet prayer

I've been praying with Sam before bed for a couple of years now.  he never wants to pray, but always wants me to pray for him - kind of like storytime, he just has to have it before bed.   lately I've been pushing him to do it, not forcing him, more like insisting.  I tell him 'God wants to hear whatever it is you have to say.'

so tonight I ask him to pray, and without resistance or my help, he says -
Dear God,
thank you for this world
thank you for all the kids
and I pray for our new house

for me, it just pulls on my heartstrings to hear such sincerity from my little man.  sometimes you just wonder what your children are thinking, and as the good book says, out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.  aaawwwww, I love it!  yep, it's mushy mommy stuff.   I was kind of surprised he didn't thank God for all the candy he got tonight trick-or-treating!

You're teachig him well. It looks like everything's going great in Colorado! I just read through your last few posts (been kind of MIA lately). I like the "S" post. I would have said almost all of the same things, except the diet pepsi, hee hee. Mine would be root beer.

That is awesome. I love hearing my little girl do her bedtime prayers.

Thanks for putting me on your blog roll. :)
