One thought on “Are they too young to pray?

  1. … I pray the Lord my soul to keep … if I should die before I wake … I pay the Lord my soul to take.

    Mom taught this and the Lord’s Prayer to my brother and me. We were not yet in kindergarten. I used to think it was all one long prayer. (LOL) Mom listened to us pray it together every night before we snuggled underneath our covers. It was a comfort then, a song we would sing at bedtime.

    Examining the words today, it seems morbid that we should be so concerned with death.

    I have learned to embrace it daily:

    As I move forward in distraction;
    Keep me Lord;
    If my untimely death should occur;
    Walk with me Lord.

    Be blessed!!
