Out of the Mouths – and Hearts – of Babes

Tonight, praying with my seven year old, I was reminded that our faith ought to be childlike. I listen to my little son as he talks to God, and realize how free and unencumbered he is in his faith.

He trusts The Lord and loves Jesus. He doesn’t question what happened or why. He doesn’t wrestle with deep theological ponderings or try to figure it all out. He thanks God for his family and kitties and puppy. He tells Jesus he loves him and asks for His guidance. He is open and honest.

My little boy simply loves The Lord, trusts Him wholeheartedly and speaks to Jesus from His heart.

I think we could all learn a little something from the prayers of our kidlets.
