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).

A little poem

God is light
Spiritual and true

Made in the image
Are me and you

Whole, complete
Heavenly, free

Child divine
For all to see

Bathe in the beauty
Play in the sand

Feel the warmth of
God’s tender hand

Know who you are
As a child of light

See divine energy
Beautiful and bright

I am with you to keep you upright
I won’t let you go. I’ll hold you tight

I’m right beside you
Wherever you are

Don’t be afraid
I’ll never be far

Hold on to me
Because you know

I will be with you
Wherever you go

Messages of worth and love

You are loved.

You are needed.

You have a holy origin.

You are made in the image and likeness of God, good.

You are special. God delights in you. She rejoices that She made you.

These are the messages that matter.

Wouldn’t it be great if instead of advertisements of sexuality, violence, and disease that run rampant in today’s media that we are instead reminded of our inherent worth as God’s image and likeness? Wouldn’t it be nice to receive reminders and affirmations to love one another and see the child of God in each of us? Just as we treat children with such tenderness, we can also nurture the child within each of us that hopes for and desires the eternal love of an all good Mom/Dad, that Jesus called “Abba”, Daddy.

You are sinless, you are eternal. Reminding ourselves of how our Creator makes us and sees us enables us to be a healer everyday, whether we are participating in larger actions of restorative justice or simply being faithful over the little things we can do each day.

We are made to heal because we reflect the heart of God. We are made to bind up the brokenhearted. We are made to wash each others feet with our tears.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
Isaiah 61:1 ESV
