Childlike prayer

My daughter used to pray in a certain way and now my 2 year old son does the same thing. I love it because it teaches me a lot about prayer.

 Tonight, he prayed for his Mom and said:

    Jesus, thank you for Mommy’s tummy to feel better. Amen

Every time I hear that type of prayer I think about faith.

The prayer starts ‘Thank You’. That’s an expression of faith. It’s like saying “I believe that you are going to answer so I’ll thank you now in advance.”

Do we really pray believing that God will answer? Can we bring ourselves to thank God that He will hear us and answer our prayer before we even pray it?

Think about it….. How much faith do you put into your prayer life?
