Calvin's Prayer

Don't miss my amazing book giveaway and my 100th post!

I just had to write this down somewhere to remember it. Calvin asked to pray at prayer time tonight, and he said the longest prayer he has ever said on his own. We have been working on "Create in Me a Clean Heart" as one of our Lenten songs, so some of Psalm 51 ended up in his prayer. All in all, it seems to be a pretty good prayer for Lent, if a little bold. Better bold than timid, I suppose.

"Dear God,
Thank you for all the wonderful things you've done. Don't take your Holy Spirit from me, forever and ever. And you have to forgive me for all of the bad things I've done. Jesus Christ is Lord. Amen."

Amen.

That's pretty good applied theology for a three year old! :-)

I love the way he said, "you have to forgive me" - just in case God was in doubt!

I love the "forever and ever." He is such a great kid! :)
Lucas and I have been having "Lenten" discussions, etc.. and now anytime he hears anyone say the word "Easter," his response is "He is Risen, Jesus is alive!" It is super cute. :)
