Annie recounted a prayer that she prayed recently at bedtime:
Thank You God for protecting me while I sleep. I ask for no silly dreams, or weird dreams, or scary dreams. I trust You that I won’t have any bad dreams.
I just thank You so much for everything You do. I could never repay You for everything and You just do so much.
I’m excited that I get to share my birthday with You on the same day as Easter and that we can share the celebration together.
Thank you for protecting me from the devil and from bad things. And for keeping me from following him or going down the wrong path. Keep me on the right path to You. Thank You God. I love You and I love praying to You every night before bedtime.
(And that, folks, is how you melt a mamma’s heart!)
I told Annie that her sweet prayer definitely made God smile.
“Yeah, and it probably made the devil frown!” Annie added.
Ha! Love that little girl!
