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).

Inspiration from a hymn

I love this song! It makes my heart sing!

Here are the words of one verse:

You are my wisdom, and You are my wealth,
You are my substance, my joy, and my health,
My Father and Mother, my haven of peace,
My comfort, my healer, my place of release.*

The words are a beautiful prayer of affirmation. I will post the song if I can find it online.
