How old were you when you prayed your first prayer?
What was your first prayer? Do you remember it today?
I remember saying…”Now I lay me down to sleep….”
Finish this prayer and tell me how it made you feel.

One thought on “Are they too young to pray?”
… 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.
