A Child’s Night Prayer

IMG_8127

I constantly find little snippets of prayers written in my 8-year-old’s notebooks. Britta is such a prayerful little girl. I hope she stays this way forever!

Here is a prayer she wrote that I found a few months ago:

Night Prayer

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

I thank you God for making me and now the day is done.

I hope that there’s no bad nights.

I thank you for this great day and the greatness of you God.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Wow. It doesn’t get much simpler (or truer!) than that.

Good night, and may you have only happy dreams with your Guardian Angel watching over you and protecting you. Amen.
