We have been working, trying to get Peyton to pray.
We have tried whispering it in her ear, which only results in giggles.
We have tried telling her to repeat us, and say it out loud.
We have tried to teach her by example.
The other day, while she was playing, the girls were at school, she began to pray all by herself!
It was a sweet little prayer.
Cuter than that, she was teaching her doll.
This morning, it being an “odd day”, perfect for Peyton, I asked her if she wanted to say the morning prayer.
“I do!! I do!!” was her answer.
I told her to say it. “You remember how it starts?”
“Dear Fa-der.. we thank thee day. Pllll-ease blll-ess day. Plll-ease blll-ess be nice. Plll-ease blll-ess be safe. Pllll-ease blll-ess food. Name Jesus Christ.. AMEN!!!”
She did it.
And I couldn’t be happier.
