Last night as we sat and watched "funnies" (America's Funniest Home Videos), something I do regularly with my son on Sunday nights after the other kids go to bed, he blurted out -
"Hey Mom - see that guy Tom Bergeron? He looks just like me."
Hmmm....personally I don't see the resemblance but hey...
Then, as we got ready for bed, he told me "Mommy, we need to pray a serious prayer tonight".
Not knowing what exactly that meant I prayed as usual. He usually jumps in but didn't. Not until I was completely done anyway. Here are a few things he prayed:
"Jesus, thank you for making my mommy and daddy for me...thank you for letting me have this family....thank you for letting my mommy and daddy buy this home...please help me tomorrow in everything I do...please help me learn how to listen to and obey my mommy and daddy more..."
He went on for a good 5-10 minutes, which is long for most folks to pray out loud let alone a 4 year old.
I can't tell you how much it warmed my heart to see his purity in seeking the Lord through prayer and that I was able to be a part of that.
Jesus - Thank you so much for letting MIE have this family. Help me be a mother somehow close to worthy of the children you've placed in my care.
