Prayer is a huge thing in our house, I pray with the kids about almost everything. I want them to learn that God is always here, and that no matter what you are going through big or small you should take it to God. I want to start incorporating more bible verses and passages into our prayer time but I know that will come in time.
Booger has been having some trouble sleeping lately and so he asks me to come a pray over him at night. Last night he was in and out of bed and I was getting frustrated. I was trying to hang out with the hubby and a good friend last night, and I will admit I was being quite selfish with my time. Finally Booger came out into the living room, and said "Mom, will you PLEASE come and pray that I won't have bad dreams tonight?" Part of me wanted to tell him that we had already prayed for the night and that it was time for bed, I really thought it was just one more excuse to get out of bed, but I got up anyway and went and prayed with my son. God is so great, because after that Booger did not get out of bed again, he REALLY needed that prayer to go to sleep and to give him peace of mind. Thank You Lord for again using my children to show me how to have that "childlike faith".
