Thank You, for the Children’s Prayers

Thank You for the children’s prayers:

For the “Dear Hope-enly Father” who continues, “I hope Mommy doesn’t die. I hope Daddy doesn’t die. I hope my sisters don’t die.” May she always bring her hope-list to the Hope-enly God.

And thank You for the staller who starts, “Deeeeeeeeeaaaaaaarrrrrrr Goooooooooooood.” May he get another minute before he has to climb in bed. And when he is chided to continue and then asks for heavenly assistance with, “Please help Mom not be so meeeeeeeeaaaaaaan,” may his request be granted.

Thank You for the thankful, who could go on and on. “Thank You for the rainbows and the rhinos and the hippos and the triceratops and the T-Rexes and the swings and the…” May they never find the end to their list.

Thank You for the straight business prayers of “Thank You for this food but I hate broccoli.” May we all remember to stay honest and open with You.

Yes, Lord, thank You for loving us as we love ours.

Thank You for reminding us to come as a child.


***In the spirit of Brian Doyle’s “Book of Uncommon Prayer” and with continuing praise to the Creator, Amen.
