more than i love praying for... {hawaii mommy blogger}

more than i love praying for my kids, i love watching them pray for others. it almost has me at tears when they pray. this is when i see their hearts. when i hear what is on their heart.

kaleb loves to pray for dolphins, his sister to get a green face and the library. stormie prays for her naked barbie loosing her clothes and that she remains a princess. baby j doesn't have words, but i can almost bet he's praying for more food.

anytime one of us are sick or hurt we encourage them to pray for the other. compassion in action. at 3. it really is beautiful.

i love that they will grow up with prayer as part of their lifestyle. and know at any given time they can talk to the creator of the heavens and the earth.


  1. Love prayers of my children!!! So real and honest- no faking.....

  2. Anytime you talk about the kids I always get so teary eyed... I love them so much!

  3. I'm totally with you on this. I love hearing my kids pray. Bible says to become like little children, which they don't have to do. They're there. I think there is something powerful going on when kids talk to God, with that simple faith, believing and not doubting because doubting comes hard to them. It's a beautiful thing.

  4. Compassion in action...sounds like a great name for a nonprofit. Don't you love what kids think is important?!

  5. ATKAY: YES - so real!
    Vanessa: and they love you...kinda.
    OnBig - your post totally made me cry...what a WHIMP! i never thought about it that way...that they have no doubt. they must have the clearest connection to god.
    Larisa - i love it! its so straight to the point.

  6. Ack! I'm completely behind.
    Mallow rolls. drool. I need one please.
    I loved this post. I'm so glad you're documenting this so they can look back on it.
    Also, what happened with the judge???ARGH! Why does it have to be so hard???

  7. I completely have never really thought about having my girls pray more. Often my prayers throughout the day are silent ones in my head. You have reminded me however that I am a witness to the girls and that I should be teaching them by example. They need to know that they can talk to God anytime and anywhere. Thanks for the reminder! :)

  8. Beautiful! I wish you all the best.
