Every night after worship the kids get into bed. Then Jon and/or I go into their rooms to tuck them in and pray with them again. This second prayer is usually very short and asks for sweet dreams and God to send His angel to be with them while they sleep.
Caitlin was having difficulty settling down tonight and apparently didn't pay attention to my prayer. So she used this as a ploy to get me to come back.
She wanted me to pray again.
So I told her that I'd already prayed. Now it was her turn.
She didn't want to at first, but then agreed.
"Dear Jesus, I'm praying because Mommy told me to. Amen!"
