Children's Prayers

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

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.

One Sunday in a Midwest City, a young child was
"acting up" during the morning worship hour. The
parents did their best to maintain some sense of order
in the pew but were losing the battle.

Finally, the father picked the little fellow up and
walked sternly up the aisle on his way out.

Just before reaching the safety of the foyer, the
little one
called loudly to the congregation, "Pray for me! Pray
for me!"

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


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."


A Sunday school teacher asked her little 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."


The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mike,
and as he preached, he moved briskly about the
platform, jerking the mike cord as he went.

Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the
cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again.

After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the
third pew
leaned toward her mother and whispered,

"If he gets loose, will he hurt us?"


Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel,
were 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,
Ryan, 3.

The boys began to argue over who would get the first

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

"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?"


After the church service, a little boy told the

"When I grow up, I'm going to give you some money."

"Well, thank you," the pastor replied, "but why?"

"Because my daddy says you're one of the poorest
preachers we've
ever had."


A wife invited some people to dinner.

At the table, she turned to their six-year-old
daughter and

"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

They were ready to discuss the last one. The teacher
asked if could tell her what it was.

Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted,

At Sunday School they were teaching how God created
everything, including human beings. Little Johnny, a
child in the kindergarten class, seemed especially
intent when they told him how Eve was created out of
one of Adam's ribs.

Later in the week his mother noticed him lying as
though he was
ill, and said, "Johnny what is the matter?"

Little Johnny responded,
"I have a pain in my side. I think I'm going to have
a wife!"


"Our father, who does art in heaven, Howard is his


A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales.

The teacher said it was physically impossible for a
whale to swallow a human, because even though it was a
very large mammal its throat was very small.

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a
The teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow
a human; it was impossible.

The little girl said, "When I get to heaven, I will
ask Jonah."
The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to heck?"

The little girl replied, "Then you ask him."
