“Grandma…Amen”

Ben and I were playing with his mega bloks in the front room today when we heard a plane fly over the house.  Here’s our conversation:

Me:  Ben, do you hear the plane?

Ben:  Plane (looking out the window)…whew (waving his hand through the air).

Me:  Yes, a plane.  It’s been a while since we’ve been on a plane.

Ben:  Bye-bye (waving to the sky).

Me:  Maybe we can go on a plane sometime soon to see Grandma.

Ben:  Grandma…Amen.

Then he stood up and walked over to me and grabbed both of my hands in his little hands.  I knew what he wanted…he wanted to pray for Grandma and that’s just what we did!

Me:  Dear Heavenly Father, please help Grandma…

Ben:  Grandma (said Gran-ma)

Me:  (continuing the prayer)…to feel better today and please heal her body.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Ben:  Amen.

    I just found this today via Bill. Don’t spend a lot of time on my computer every day. I start crying each time I read this conversation or think of your little prayer warrior for me……I know the prayers of children are so precious to heaven.
    Thanks Ben , I love you, Gran-ma
