Each night we pray with Kate (our 2 yr old daughter). We use different formats each night. Some nights I will pray for us all or Peggy will pray for us all, and other times (like tonight) we pray and have Kate repeat the words after us.
Tonight, we used the method where Kate repeats the words after me. I'd like to share the prayer with you now.
Rick: God, I love you.
Kate: God, I love you.
Rick: Thank you for life
Kate: Thank you for life
Rick: Please help my bottom to feel better (she has a small rash)
Kate: Please help my bottom to feel better
Rick: God, you are perfect
Kate: you are perfect
Rick: and you are not like me
Kate: You do not like me
Thank goodness for Romans 8:26, which says:
"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express."
