part of Gracie's lunch prayer

"Help Katie not to pull things out of the plugs."

After seeing how I reacted to Katie when she pulled the flashlight thingy out of the plug today and hearing me tell her how dangerous that was, Gracie decided to include a plea to God to help Katie not to do that anymore.

Thank you God for letting our children set examples for us! I hadn't thought to pray about this discipline struggle we've been having with Katie, but Gracie did. Sounds like I'm learning one of the lessons my blogger friend, TMK, learned the other day when her boys were suggesting moments of prayer. Thank you God for the faith of our children! In Jesus' Name, Amen!

I teach the 3's and 4's at church and one of the boys was praying in class a while back for his baby brother to not cry so much. He was so fervent in his prayer. He kept saying, "God, PLEASE help him!" It was so cute.

Jenna is 11 months old and also into everything!
