Caleb likes to pray. It is just too amazing. He holds our hands, we pray, he actually stays still and quiet (besides maybe repeating “Mi Mi” or “Pa” or “Ti Ti” or “Dee” as we pray for different people)! For anyone who has or knows a 21 month old, you know how amazing that is! Then, when we’re done and say “Amen”, he most often puts his hand in the air and repeats a “meh!”
It is just so precious!
Well, we’ve recently started praying together before dinner. He will actually sit in his highchair and hold our hands (daddy’s in one hand, mommy’s in the other) and pray with us. Sometimes he will tell us which of us he wants to pray!
The other day we were rushed and hungry and started eating without praying first. Tim and I were eating and talking about the day and we hear him grunting (he doesn’t talk too much yet) and reaching out for our hands. Tim and I were trying to figure out what he was asking for and then it hit us. We didn’t pray before we ate! That amazing little kid actually told us to pray!!! He made us stop eating and pray!
That little kid got us back on track and helped remind us of the importance the prayer and being thankful for what we have!
