Prayers of the Children
dmhall | August 3, 2012

There are plenty of books and articles that include prayers children have written, whether as a project in school or as an activity in Sunday School class. I am always fascinated by their innocence, assumptions, and pure honesty. So here are a few someone sent me this week. I will resist the temptation to “theologize,” correct spelling or grammar, and simply invite you to enjoy a refreshing time of prayer!

Dear God,

In bible times did they really talk that fancy? Jennifer

I bet it is very hard for you to love all of everybody in the whole world. There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it. Nan

We read Thos Edison made light. But in Sunday School they said you did it. So I bet he stoled your idea. Sincerely, Donna

Thank you for the baby brother but what I prayed for was a puppy. Joyce

I went to this wedding and they kissed right in church. Is that ok? Neil

Instead of letting people die and haveing to make new ones why don’t you just keep the ones you got now? Jane

I think the stapler is one of your greatest invention. Ruth M.

I think about you sometimes even when I’m not praying. Elliott

I am Amerarican. What are you? Robert

Please put another holiday between Christmas and Easter. There is nothing good in there now. Ginny

If you watch in Church on Sunday I will show you my new Shoes. Mickey D.

If we come back as something please don’t let me be Jennifer Horton because I hate her. Denise

Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother. Larry

If you give me genie lamp like Alladin I will give you anything you want except my money or my chess set. Raphael

If you let the dinasor not exstinct we would not have a country. You did the right thing. Jonathan

Please send Dennis Clark to a different camp this year. Peter
