We go to great lengths to teach our kids prayers, and we can’t help but enjoy it when they pray as only children can.
With all the negativity surrounding us, both in the media and in our lives in general, there’s something so beautiful about the way children answer questions, tell stories, and (perhaps most especially) say their prayers.
As parents, we go to great lengths to teach out kids prayers they can use to develop their relationship with God, and we can’t help but enjoy each and every time they offer those prayers up, as only children can, with all kinds of cute and endlessly hilarious mistakes.
From “Hail Mary, full of grapes…” to “Remember, almost gracious Virgin Mary…,” we took to Twitter to hear all your favorite times your children prayed the darnedest things…
Singing is like praying twice!
The Bible does speak a lot about honey…
