Out of the Mouths of Babes

Jesus holding child

Today my youngest son Anjel had the most incredible, powerful prayer that he said for his older brother. As we were getting ready to do his homework, I was sitting on my bed while he was unpacking his backpack. He says, “I’m going to say this prayer with my brother”. I was curious because he always has the best prayers. He continues on and says, “God, protect my brother from the evil that the devil is throwing at him, my brother doesn’t know or understand why he’s being attacked, so cover him, and devil I say to you, YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A LIAR! you stay away from my brother, don’t think that he is alone because he’s not! He has me and my mom, but most of all he has Jesus who beat you and spit you out like the nobody that you are! So get out and stay out!!!” I had to get up and cheer and gave him a high 5. My son is 10. He always says, “this guy,(the devil), always gotta be in somebody’s business when he should be minding his because he’s almost out of time”. I love that about him. He’s so bold and honest and never fearful. So what I say to him is, “AMEN SON, AMEN, WELL SAID!”

Matthew 18:2-4King James Version (KJV)

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

  1. Love it! Praise God for the prayers of children! My daughter with Aspergers has some of the most profound prayers I’ve ever heard. That painting that you posted is special to me. I gave it to my niece when she was little because it looked so much like her sitting on Jesus’ lap. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hey Andi,

    Tried to find your email but that didn’t work. I was going to send you an email regarding your most recent post on Spiritual Gifts.

    Also, not sure if your 10yo is a reader but I’m hosting a book give-away on my blog…consider checking it out.
