Every night before the boys go to bed, we all lay on the floor together and say a prayer. Usually Daddy prays for all of us. Sometimes we will offer the boys an opportunity to pray. Ryan nearly always wants to pray. Alex typically does not. Tonight was no different, but Ryan’s prayer tonight was so sweet that I wanted to remember it. Normally, he just prays, “Thank you God for everything.” Not tonight!
Thank You for such a wonderful day! Please keep Daddy safe coming home. And please let him come home in time to say “Good night.”
And please heal my hurting eye. Oh, and Mommy’s tummy ache and Alex’s cold.
Thank You, God.
In Jesus’ name,
I loved how thoughtful the prayer was! It was far different from his normal self-centered thoughts and words! The thing that I could never recreate in a blog was the precious attitude of his prayer. Ryan was so respectful in his tone. He spoke slowly and thoughtfully. And there was sweet compassion that came across in his prayers for others. What a blessed way to end the night!!!
