Learning to Pray by Brittany Riddle
I have a 4-year-old friend whose family I often eat with at our church’s Wednesday night dinners. She is full of energy, has a vivid imagination, and she is one of the few people who can convince me to have a jumping or twirling contest in the middle of dinner.
Recently, during our prayer time after dinner, my 4-year-old friend came over and whispered, “Can I sit with you while we pray?” She hopped up in my lap and clasped her hands around mine as we prayed. As soon as we said, “Amen,” she jumped out of my lap and went right back into full-energy mode.
