Out Prayed By A 5-Year-Old


It happened last night and it happened again tonight!


As I put the girls to bed, Blake (2) is always eager to pray! She prays for the people in our home and many of them more than once because she does not recall who she already prayed for (or maybe they just need it more...huh.) She occasionally will add someone else like a grandparent or a teacher at church or her beloved "Mami" who cares for her during our small group.


I prayed for the children and our children we have not met yet . This includes the spouses of our children and generations to come as well as any other children God adds to our family. I also prayed for the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and those folks who call us family since we do not live close to any family.


Then Miss Lydia, prays for, "all the mamas and daddies and children that are sick in the whole world."
As if I did not learn from that prayer, tonight she prayed for,
"everybody she knows and everybody she does not know."


Again, I limit God.


But, a 5-year-old understands how big He is!
