Addie's Bedtime Prayer

"If you can't say 'Amen!', you ought to say 'Ouch'."

In the words of one of my favorite preachers... Voddie Baucham

Well, Addie took his words to heart last night during bed time prayers.

Here was her prayer... word for word.


"Dear Lord,

Thank you SO much for this day. I had so much fun!

Please Lord, send us more rain! We need it so badly! The birds and the grass need it.

Lord help me to walk in your ways... ALL the days of my life.

Help me to do my chores tomorrow and to be happy doing them like I was doing them for YOU!

THANK YOU Lord for this world you created for us!

And PLEASE Lord, please help me not to sneak any thing or be disobedient tomorrow.

Amen."

Then to me with expecation, "Mom, did you like my prayer?"

Me holding back a smirk, "I sure did! I’m sure God loved it."

Thinking, I could take some notes from my daughter on praying ... the enthusiasm especially.

I bet God would also like to hear... "Did you like my prayer?" too.

I know why God gave us children... to help us understand him more.
