First Prayer

Micah prayed his first prayer tonight. It was so cute and I’ll admit, I got a little teary.

We asked him if he wanted to pray at dinner. This is how it went.

Me: Micah, do you want to pray?
Micah: Yep!
Me: Go ahead. (I close my eyes)
(Silence)
Me: (I open my eyes)
Micah: (Looks at me askance)
Me: Go ahead. Can you pray?
Micah: Yep!
Me: Ok. Let’s pray.
(All close eyes and fold hands)
Micah: God mumble mumble mumble Jesus mumble mumble mumble mumble mumble
(Silence)
Me: (I open my eyes and look at Micah. He has opened his eyes and is looking at me–and smiling) Amen?
Benji: (very loud) YEA!!!!

Precious, Precious, Precious. Sniff, sniff. 🙂
