Little boys' prayers

Luke and I were talking the other day. He was trying to wrap his mind around the fact that God never makes mistakes. He said: "I don't want to mess up. I want to be just like God."

Jon David scraped his belly on a tree branch yesterday. At bed time, he thanked God that it felt better, but said that he needed some "God power" to make it all the way better. :)

They both (with Jon David's leadership) have been praying the following:

"God, I want to be just like You."
Tonight, Luke added "I want to be in heaven with you."
Jon David (and then Luke--during his prayer :) :God, will you let me know when it is OK for me to be baptized? But if you don't want to answer my prayer, you don't have to. You can do whatever you want to."

I cried.


  1. Precious! I cried, too. Your boys have such tender hearts!

  2. I love those boys with all my heart. God is so obviously working in their hearts. What if we all said, "God, you can do whatever you want to." Thank you, Father, for revealing yourself to children.

  3. You know you are doing something right when you hear your little ones converse with God in that way! Way to go!
