One night while our church’s Children’s Choir was getting ready to present their Christmas musical, my 3 year old grandson, Dylan, stopped their snack time. He told the choir directer they could not eat yet because they had not prayed. He then proceeded to tell the whole group to stop eating so they could pray. The children’s choir director was so impressed by this 3 year old’s spirituality that she told Dylan he could be the one to pray. To her surprise his prayer was, "Dear Lord, Thank you for Dylan! Amen!" We can laugh at this simple prayer but many times our prayers are all about us and not about the needs of others.
