Maddie’s Prayer

Written By Amy

Ashley And Maddie

 

I wanted to share a prayer that my daughter, Maddie (10), wrote this past Sunday morning during a family devotional time.  When I first read it, I was touched by the simplicity of the prayer, reminding me that my prayers to God don’t need to be complicated and full of words, just an honest outpouring of my heart.

It is with her permission that I share it (and if you know her you will believe she was very excited when I asked if I could share this on my blog…no shyness with this one!)

Dear God,

God you’re a magnificent God.  You made the heaven and the trees.  You created  heaven so that people can have a good place to look forward to when they die.  I praise you God because you are an amazing God.

Please forgive me for when I lie.  I have gotten way better because you have helped me.

Thank you for an amazing dog and family.   They have blessed me with so many things.  And thank you for amazing friends like Ashley.  She is so sweet.

Please put your holy spirit inside of people so they can become Christians and follow you, God.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Maddie
