Praying Hands


About a week ago Kaden started calling me "mama" and it made my heart melt. But today, today he did something that made me the happiest mommy alive. Today- Kaden learned to pray. Ever since he came home to us we have been praying with him. He has seen us do family devotions, watched us pray at every meal and sat on my lap while we prayed before bed. In just 2 short weeks with us, he put his little hands together today and prayed for the very first time. I would not be more proud if he got straight A's, was crowned homecoming king or made the winning touch down! MY BABY BOY PRAYED and while I know it's just a start, he is on his way to learning more about Jesus. To me, there is nothing to be more proud of.
Lord, may he grow to know you more and more every day.

I'm smiling, Amy, because this just happened with Joshua. He can't say the prayer, but he happily folds his hands when we do. It is so heart-warming to see little Jonathan and Joshua in their high chairs folding their hands while we pray.
Thank you for loving your little child and teaching him to know Jesus!

That is awesome! Seeing my kids pray or hearing them sing praise songs just blesses my heart so much. Every time God whispers to my hear and I know: THIS is IT! This is why we did this!" :)
