We had just sat down to dinner when my 4-year-old grandson, Kai, proclaimed, “I pray now. I love Grandma. I love Grandpa. Am! (Translation: “Amen!”)
Best grace prayer EVER!
Kai was acting out a story that had been lived out before him all of his life. Now he wanted to try his hand at it.
Did he have a doctrinal understanding of a grace prayer?
Did we care if he didn’t? Nope.
Have you ever known a spiritual truth to be understood before it was lived?
Of course not! Faith always precedes understanding.
- Prayer can’t just be explained. It must be lived before it becomes ingrained in our faith DNA.
