“A Child’s Prayer”

When Robert Louis Stevenson was a boy he once remarked to his mother, “Momma, you can’t be good without praying.” “How do you know, Robert?” she asked. “Because I’ve tried!” he answered. This brings to mind a story about another little fellow — one who had been sent to his room because he had been bad. A short time later he came out and said to his mother, “I’ve been thinking about what I did and I said a prayer.” “That’s fine,” she said, “if you ask God to make you good, He will help you.” “Oh, I didn’t ask Him to help me be good,” replied the boy. “I asked Him to help you put up with me.”  Our Daily Bread

Dear mothers, if your children are praying you should praise the Lord that they have seen a mother praying and have seen those prayers come back with answers from the Lord.  Mothers, in the course of training your children there is much to teach them but one of the greatest thing you can teach them by word and by example is to pray to the Lord!  It will bless them the rest of their life and usher them into eternity with Jesus.  Happy Mother’s Day dear sisters!  Pastor Mark
