Scooters’ closing prayer

February 9th, 2011

P1260128

This last Monday night, Scooters was having a difficult time attending to our Family Home Evening lesson.

When we finally got to the end, I volunteered him for the closing prayer because I knew it would be the best way to keep him reverent for it. :)

I had started having him pray for meals a couple weeks ago and he is so cute!  He folds his arms and studiously watches me.  Repeating every word I say the best he can.

Expecting this same behavior on Monday night, I began, “Say, ‘Dear'”

“Heavly,” Scooters skipped ahead.

“Heavenly,” I went on.

“Fadder,” he skipped ahead.  Again.

“Father,” I went on.

“Amen,” he skipped ahead.  To the end.

“We thank thee,” I went on.

“Amen,” he repeated.

“For our family,” I went on.

“Amen,” he repeated.

“Please bless us,” I went on.

“Amen!” he repeated.

“We love thee,” I went on.

“Amen!!” he repeated.

“In the name of Jesus Christ,” I went on.

“AMEN!!!!” he repeated.

“Amen,” I repeated.
