Just wanted to share this sweet little story with you!
As part of getting Gavin to do more things (see previous post), we’ve been having him pray before dinner. A few nights ago, Grandpa prayed and as soon as he was done, Gavin began a prayer without any prompting. “Jesus, thank you for mommy, and daddy, and for the new house, and for my new bedroom and for mommy and daddy’s room. Amen.”
Ususally Gavin needs lots of prompting to pray and his prayers usually end up just being a list of people (we assume the ones he’s thankful for!) This time, he needed no prompting and his prayer sounded like a real prayer (not that his others weren’t). We all looked up from the table and each of us had tears in our eyes. It was so amazing to hear those sweet little words to Jesus.
