3-year-old, Reese:
"Our Father, Who does art in heaven? Harold is His
name.   Amen."


A little boy was overheard praying:
      "Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't
worry about it. I'm having a real good time like I am."


In Sabbath school, a class was studying the Ten
Commandments. They were ready to discuss
the last one. The teacher asked if anyone could
tell her what it was. Susie raised her hand, stood tall,
and quoted, "Thou shall not take the covers off
the neighbor's wife."


After the christening of his baby brother in church,
Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of
the car. His father asked him three times what was
wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "That preacher said
he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I
wanted to stay with you guys."

I had been teaching my three-year old daughter,
Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer for several evenings at
bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the
prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo.  I
listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each
word right up to the end of the prayer:
    "Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but
deliver us some E-mail.  Amen."

One particular four-year-old prayed, "And forgive us
our trash baskets as we forgive those who
put trash in our baskets."


A Sunday school teacher asked her children, as they
were on the way to church service, "And why is it necessary
to be quiet in church?"  One bright little girl
replied, "Because people are sleeping."

Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel
were sitting together in church. Joel giggled,
sang, and talked out loud.  Finally, his big sister
had had enough. "You're not supposed to talk
out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?"
Joel asked.  Angie pointed to the back of
the church and said, "See those two men standing by
the door?  They're hushers."


A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin,
5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over
who would get the first pancake.  Their mother saw the
opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were
sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the
first pancake, I can wait.'" Kevin turned to his younger
brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"


A father was at the beach with his children when the
four- year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand,
and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in
the sand.
"Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked.
"He died and went to Heaven," the Dad replied.
The boy thought a moment and then said, "Did God throw
him back down?"

A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table,
she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,
"Would you like to say the blessing?"
"I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied.
"Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on
earth did I invite all these people to dinner?
