One night a father heard his young daughter speaking, although she was alone in her room. The door was open just enough that he could see that she was kneeling beside her bed in prayer. Interested to find out what subjects a child would bring before God, he paused outside her door and listened.

After tuning in to her speech he was puzzled to hear her reciting the alphabet: "A, B, C, D, E, F, G..." She just kept repeating it. He didn’t want to interrupt her, but soon curiosity got the best of him and he broke into the prayer.

"Honey," he asked, "what are you doing?"

"I’m praying, Daddy," she replied.

"Well, why are you praying the alphabet?" he asked.

She explained, "I started my prayers, but I wasn’t sure what to pray. So I decided to just say all the letters of the alphabet and let God put them together however he thinks best."
