Answered Prayer

Tyler was begging to go to the park today, but the weather didn't look like it was going to cooperate. I told him that I didn't think it would be a good idea because it looked like it could rain at any moment. He was not happy with that answer and continued to whine about it and so I decided to compromise with him. I told him we would drive to the park (we usually walk) and if it started to rain that we would have to come home. He was happy with that and then said, "I don't want it to rain." I told him that he should talk to God about that and so I told him what to pray. He asked God to not let it rain while we were at the park. So we got to the park and the boys played for a long time. As we were leaving Tyler said, "It didn't rain, mama!" He was so excited that it hadn't rained and I told him that God answered his prayer. He was ecstatic and started yelling, "God answered my prayer! God answered my prayer!" When we got home he was still talking about it and so I told him he should thank God for answering his prayer. He ran outside in the backyard praising God for his answered prayer!

While we were at the park he was asking where God lived and so I told him He lives in heaven. He told me that he wanted to go visit him this weekend. He also told me that he thought God drives a red car. I asked him what color car Jesus drives and he answered, "Green- just like Grandma's!

I just thought these stories were too cute not to share. Tyler is starting to ask more and more questions about God. He loves to go to church and loves singing songs with his friends. He is one sweet boy!

What a wonderful post. It's so neat to hear a child's thoughts about God and to have that first teachable moment about prayer. What a sweet story.

Oh, by the way, tell Tyler my prayer is being answered. I regularly pray for each grandson to love God and to know Jesus as Savior. Looks like Tyler loves God already!
