I will typically pray something and he will repeat it and he usually is able to remember when to say, “In Jesus name, Amen”. But I have noticed recently that he has a lot of his own opinions and that he is really able to tell me what he wants (Even telling me that he wants the blueberry yogurt and that he does not like the peach one!). So I asked him, “Do you want to lead the prayer tonight Eli?” I told him, “Just talk to God for our family”.

His prayer was simple and yet profound:

“God…Please help us God…In Jesus name, Amen”

While that is pretty simple, it is also so important that we ask God that same thing. God please help us! We all need help, regardless of what you are going through or what someone else might be going through, we need God’s help…so I ask:

“God…Please help us God…In Jesus name, Amen”
