Out Of The Mouths Of Babes

So I'm laying in bed with my son Trey last night reading the Bible with him, and we're in Matthew going over the Beatitudes.

We talked about "Those who are treated badly because they do good, they will be happy. The Kingdom of God belongs to them". And we used the illustration of Trey being nice to a new kid in class and being called "dumb" because he was nice to him.

Well nothing momentous at this point, except for the fact that when we laid the Bible on his nightstand and I asked him to pray, these were his words:

Please help all the people in Australia.
And also Jesus, help us have food, and clothes, and houses.
In your name we pray.
Prayer isn't hard. It's actually powerful when it's simple and straight from your heart.
