I work at a Christian Pre-school. Everyday at circle time the children pray for any students that happen to be sick or have a specific prayer request. Today "Jill" asked to pray aloud for her mother who was sick.
Jill: "Dear God, please heal my mommy. (Then she looked up at one of the boys who tends to cause trouble and added) And God please help "Jack" behave himself and not do silly things."
To which Jack frowned and said...
"I'm not going to promise you that. I'm going to do silly things."
"Jack" is only five years old. But as the other teacher said "At least he knows himself."
I think that's a good point. I'll take a lesson from him today. To know that I will do "silly" things on my own, without the help of God to save me from myself.
