When Children Pray

By Dionna Sanchez

I volunteered once a week in my daughterís first-grade class last year. I would usually be there to help out with reading, but once in awhile when the day would progress quickly or out-of-order; Iíd get to witness Bible time. At the end of Bible time was prayer time.

The first time I witnessed prayer time I got tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat. It was one of the most touching moments I have seen.

These precious children would pray about anything and everything. They cared about one anotherís requests and would pray for a friendís sick cat, dad who needed a job, vacation, or a hurt knee. It was so innocent and tender Ė yet a real eye opener.

These children were being an example to me without even knowing it! They never laughed at someone elseís concern, they didnít worry about how simple their words were, and they prayed earnestly.

I firmly believe that our world would be changed if we all bared one anotherís burdens in love like this small group of children.

And I know that God listens when children pray. I can see why! There has never been a more honest heart than a childís when he/she prays!

I am humbled and thankful that children can sometimes see what we canít. They see the need to care, love, listen, hopeÖand pray.
