Chilren’s prayer is precious

MOORE — Nothing is more precious than listening to a child’s prayer.

A seven-year-old boy was asked to pray over the meal.

He bowed his head and prayed:  “Dear Jesus, bless this food, and if I really have to eat this spinach, I just know I’m gonna die, but at least then I’ll be in heaven with You, and I know there won’t be any spinach in heaven.  Amen.”  

Here are a few more cute prayers from little darlings:

“Dear God, please take care of my daddy, mommy, sister, brother, my doggy and me. Oh, please take care of yourself, God. If anything happens to you, we’re gonna be in a big mess.”

“Dear God, when my mom makes leftovers, do I have to pray for the food again?”

“Dear God, I heard the moon was made of cheese. Tonight, half of it is missing. Did you get hungry?”

“Dear God, did you mean for giraffes to look like that or was it an accident?”

“Dear God, I love Christmas and Easter. Could you please put another holiday in the middle; there’s nothing good in there now.”

“Dear God, who do I pray to when you go on vacation?”

School starts this week, and our hearts go out to the students of Plaza Towers and Briarwood elementary schools. It goes without saying that every child will remember the last day they attended school. 

We pray for every student, every teacher and every cafeteria worker and volunteer as they deal with memories and go forward. We pray for peace and that God will send an angel to every one of you to make this transition easier.

May you feel the presence of angels and know that God is with you and that we are praying for you.
