Thankful for Children

November 25, 2013

Dinner

My oldest son (age 4) often shares the prayer when we sit down at the table to eat dinner. Tonight’s prayer was just awesome, so I tried to quickly jot it down while we remembered it.

Thank you Jesus for our food.

And thank you for this nice snack.

Thank you for (my brother) going to church.

In Jesus name…

(pause)

And for (preschool friend) coming back to school.

And for (another preschool friend) coming back.

In Jesus name…

(pause)

Our 2 year old son checked out by this point and just started eating.

For Mommy and Nona having a good exercise time.

For going to church.

(pause)

For (my brother) making this (a craft) in Sunday School.

In Jesus name…

AAAA-MEN!

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. -Matthew 18:1-5 NRSV
