Never Force A Child To Pray

At dinner, a little boy was asked to lead the prayer.

boy prayingBut I don’t know how to pray, he replies.

Just pray for your family members, friends and neighbours, the poor, etc. says his father.
Okay stuttered the boy. “Dear Lord Thank you for our visitors and their children, who finished all my sweets and ice cream, bless them so they won’t come again.
Forgive our neighbour’s son, who removed my sister’s clothes and wrestled with her on her bed.
This coming Christmas, please send clothes to all those poor naked ladies on my daddy’s Blackberry and provide shelter for the homeless men who use mum’s room when daddy is at work. AMEN

Dinner was cancelled.

    Wow! I’ll bet this family makes sure that this child is never asked to say the prayer again. He obviously nows too many of the family secrets.
