A child’s recipe for prayer 

My darling 4-year old overheard me ask my husband for prayerful support. He wanted to jump in and offer his help, too. 

He said:

Pray to God and ask Him to take your fear away.

Read this book…(hands me a book about God)

Be quiet so Mommy can pray and listen to God (he tells my husband)

Is your fear gone now?

(Me: yes it’s going away) 

Now just express God so your fears won’t come back.

Thats what I do.

Keep your door shut. Does your door* keep out a lot of fears?

(Me: Yes)

Mine too. Mine keeps out lots of fears. 

Referring to being a porter at the “door of thought” (a reference by Mary Baker Eddy in her book Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures).
