Each night we say our prayers together. We have our typical prayer, Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord our souls to keep....but then we add on whatever is on our minds. The kids prayers are always so open and honest. I admire this because, as an adult I tend to be more guarded with my prayers, especially when they are out loud. T is about at this point now, at 13, he will say a prayer out loud at small group but it's more of a God is great, God is good type of thing. As he's gotten older, his prayers are more guarded like mine. R prays for things cautiously and considerately. I have never heard her pray from things that are frivolous or material, at least not aloud. G though, at 5, still has that innocence that only a 5 year old can. He come to God and talks as he would talk to me or his dad. He talks freely and with an ease that most adults lack.
I think we should all come to God as children and it would be a much more honest prayer.
Here is the video of G praying last night, you will have to listen closely. For translation sake; he is basically telling Him, thank you for a good heart and a good family and we love you God, we love you.
