Happy Sunday!

For today’s short sermon, I’ll share a story I recently heard about prayer:

A grandfather was visiting his son’s family and one evening after dinner and homework, the grandfather climbed the stairs with the grandson who was on his way to his bedroom to get ready for bed.  The grandfather said, “Remember to say your prayers”.  The grandson replied, “Oh, I always say my prayers. I never forget!”.  Since the grandson was so emphatic, the grandfather decided he’d stand outside the door and listen. The 5-year old grandson proceeded to vocally say his evening prayer. He thanked his Heavenly Father for various things. He asked for various blessings.  Then at the end of the prayer, this 5-year old said, “Now, Heavenly Father, is there anything you’d like to tell me?”

What a good example to us! We need to remember that prayer is meant to be two-way communication.  We need to ask God what he’d like to tell us – and then listen!

Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
