Have you noticed how much you can learn from children? From innocence, and laughter, to abandonment in wholehearted play. Thinking back a few years, I remember a year when my granddaughters impressed me with their completely different shopping personalities. It’s taken me a while but I’ve come to realize it was a teaching on prayer.
Those girls were in search of gifts from their grandmother. They knew grandma loved them and wanted to grant their wishes. They handled it in three different styles and I learned from each.
One was tentative, not positive on how much grandma would spring for. She needed to be encouraged.
One was specific. She knew exactly what she wanted and asked for it.
One was joyful. She happily asked for everything she could get, not afraid of being turned down.
These three girls have inspired me in prayer.
