When I was a little girl my family said Thank You prayers to God at night. No matter what bad or good was going on in our lives I remember thanking God. I have tried to teach mine not to repeat the same prayer over and over but to thank God from your heart. Since they are 4 and5 years old this comes in thankful praying.
We were eating lunch with my parents and they asked him to pray for the food. We bowed our heads, closed our eyes and I took a deep breath preparing for Carters sermon. Dear God, thank you for the giraffes, because who else would eat the leaves off the trees...and thank you God for the Elephants because who else would use thier trunks to spray water...and dear God why does the Elephants poop get so big, and dear God..." "AMEN" I kept repeating but to no use he was worshiping in his our geographical way. My dad almost laughed himself to heaven while the rest of us just smiled and enjoyed the simplicity of him.
