Sweet Prayers of a Child

Our 3 year-old is beginning to learn a little bit about prayer.  She insists on us praying with her every night before she goes to bed, mainly as a means of avoiding the inevitable.  But of course, we wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to pray with our daughter for anything. 

In the past, her Daddy or I would be the one to actually speak the prayers for her.  Every now and then, she’ll mention something that she wants us to pray about... usually for her Nana, Ampaw, and Granny.  But never have we heard her pray on her own. Until Thursday night...

As Daddy was finishing up story time and tucking her into bed, he asked her if she would like to pray.  And for the first time, in a very simple, short sentence, Addy spoke her first prayer.

Any guesses what she prayed for? 

"Dear God, please send us a big snow."

And you know what happened the very next day?

I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. : )








God answered her prayers with 6" of the white stuff.  Does that happen often in TN?  No way.  Coincidence?  Absolutely not.
