Thank you for this day! Please help me today to obey, to be kind to my friends, and to take a nap. I love you! In Jesus' name, AmenPrayer works, because she has been taking regular naps at school. Not sure why I waited so long to turn to the Lord for help in that matter.
In addition to this prayer, Karrington is learning a prayer at bedtime. This is something that my mom did with all 4 of us kids and I think is important to learn. There is nothing complicated; it is simple, short and concise. After all, how many words are we going to have a 2 year old try and remember.
Her nighttime prayer:
Thank you for this day. Thank you for my daddy. Thank you for my mommy. Forgive me of my sins. Give me health, peace and joy. In Jesus' name, Amen
I'm not sure that Karrington understands everything she is saying, but it is being planted in her heart and spirit. It is our desire for her to love and follow the Lord all the days of her life and we are trusting God to give us the parental direction and wisdom needed to teacher and instruct her.
