A Little Boys Prayer

He doesn’t know what happened in Boston today, but he knew about Sandy Hook back in December. Sometimes he still expresses fear about fire drills, lock-down drills, and even being worried about bad guys coming to school.

He didn’t know about Boston when he prayed this. But I did. His prayer is comforting, sad, and true. He covers yesterday, today, and tomorrow all at once. He didn’t know it but his prayer helped me. Maybe it’ll help you.

Dear God,

Thanks for today.
Help me to spy better.
Please help me not have scary dreams.

Amen

Amen, buddy. Amen.
