Prayers of The Heart

We're doing a new series with our community group on "parenting" - and man we are learning some good stuff and literally coming right home and trying to put it in practice.

This week we were talking about praying with our girls and one of the things brought up was having them really think about what's on their heart and mind - and to talk to God about that. We loved the idea - we think it is NEVER too early to get your kids talking to God in an honest, open way.

So tonight we kicked it off with Meron and just said "Think about what is in your heart and your mind and just talk to God about that..." She paused for a moment and then said:

"God. Thank you for sending Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. And thank you for him raising from the tomb..."
Then there was a slightly longer pause than expected and she said:
"And God... please lower the gas prices. In Jesus' name... amen."
Huh? Laura and I were like "Where on earth did you hear that?"

I mean - yeah - we'd love to see lower gas prices but I am pretty sure we haven't prayed for them any time recently.

She just giggled and giggled like the little giggle-box she is.

So there ya have it God. One of the little children - coming to ya. She's thanking ya for what Jesus did for her... and if it's your will, asking for lower gas prices!

Awesome stuff to thank God for Meron! And not too bad of a request for him either!
