As A Child

Last night, my grandson, Nolan, led my sister and I in a pretty lengthy time of prayer on our knees. Every time we would say "Amen" and raise our heads, he would insist we bow our heads and pray again. When I thought we were finished, he somehow bumped his little head on the arm of his chair. I quickly (before he thought of producing tears) laid my hands on him and prayed for his head. This led to a whole now round of prayers with him laying hands on us and praying and us praying for him (again & again). As I was kneeling there, I thought, here I had been so busy, I hadn't taken this much time to pray on my own today, but this child didn't even consider the time, he just, at the thought of praying, forgot about the exciting animal show on TV, forgot about the toys all around him, and prayed until he was through. I want to be more like this child and not let the cares of this world take precedence over spending time with Jesus.

Mark 10:15 "Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter in."


  1. Thank you for encouraging us,
    in a fervent prayer life...
    it is SO important!

    Love~ Jen

  2. "And a little child shall lead them." We can learn so much from little Nolan!
