sincerity meets efficiency: the prayer of a 3 year old

"bless mom,
bless dad
bless brothers--

bless all this"
(as arms make a circular motion encompassing the food and everything else in the room)

Yes I saw this because I was peeking, due to the fact that he often utters prayers in a barely audible tone and someone has to be on duty to lip read in order to cue the rest of the members for the appropriate "amen" moment.

1.vacation togetherness
2. my new camera (prepare to be dazzled by the improved quality of my photos- well when i learn to use it in a few years maybe)
3. comforting words of a prophet

Sure beats my daughter's prayers for daddy's pumpkin. And yes, he does have her praying for it.

Then again, I was ever so proud when she prayed it wouldn't be so darn hot outside. :-)

How can we expect kids to keep their eyes closed if we can't ourselves???
me guilty too!
so funny though... wild arms flying around during a prayer... an LDS televangelist!

I love kids' prayers. And it's very hard to keep your eyes closed.

There's something to be said for efficiency, My kids try to outdo each other by saying the longest prayers ever.

Can't wait to see the fruits of the new camera.
