Faith like a child

My eldest fell sick. He had a horrible rash a headache and bad stomach cramps all of a sudden. He couldn’t get up from bed or it got worse. Zion came up and put his hand on him and started to pray. Ben didn’t know this and was talking to Josiah, so Zion said “would you be quiet and close your eyes, I am praying for Elijah” and then he continued. The prayer went something like this… “God can you heal Elijah so he can get up and play with me and so he doesn’t feel sick in his tummy or his head anymore, thank you Jesus Amen”. Well within five minutes Elijah were up, temperature gone, headache gone, and stomach ache gone, and he wanted breakfast. I can hear him singing and playing in the background now as I write!

Zion is often praying. He is quick to lay hands on people he meets if he sees they are hurt or sick and he always expects God will come through for them. My little 4 year old is a reminder to me of coming to God as a little child. Not with eloquent words, but words from the heart that in turn touch His heart. Our God loves us all, but I think He has a soft spot for little ones… 🙂

    Outstanding! Psalm 50:2 (ESV)
    Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.

  2. Love the faith of kids! It keeps us in a reality check! What is always cool is that they are not surprised when prayer is answered, it’s a matter of fact to the kids that it is as it should be! LOVE it!

  3. Look at the child…..they will show you.

  4. Thanks Reb! That warmed my heart. Such a beautiful reminder!
