Food… and bed and stuff and pizza… and boxes
Rachel is 3, and this was her prayer at bedtime. Simple. Straightforward. Often I make prayer too formal and stilted, too grown-up. Here’s what I can learn from her.
- Nothing is too small to pray about. Or too unusual.
- It’s for God’s ears. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about the requests.
- No big words. You don’t have to impress God with style or oratory. No sense wearing Him out either.
- Prayer naturally flows from what’s already on your heart.
