An eight year old shares how she prayed.
One day my brother was very hot and not feeling
well. During the night I woke up quite a few times
because he was crying and coughing. I knew that
he wasn't feeling well.
In the morning I woke up earlier than anyone
else, so I pulled out the Bible and I went to
Exodus 20 and read the 10 Commandments. Then I
really thought about "Thou shalt not steal."
I thought about how error could not steal my brother's
"perfectness." Then I thought about
"Honor thy father and thy mother." I
thought about how God was my brother's father
and mother and would take care of him in any situation.
That day I sang lots of hymns and I read lots
of things from the Bible. I read the story about
Jesus healing the woman of fever right away. I
knew that God could do that for my brother, too.
My mom said that that same day Jesus went on to
heal many other people right away, so I knew that
my brother would be healed right away, too.
The next morning, I woke up and realized I had
had a full night's sleep without hearing a sound.
Then I went to go look for my brother. I found
him in his room sitting on the floor playing with
his Legos. Then I saw him skipping around, playing
happily. I knew that God had healed him.
I felt happy that I had helped pray and see my
brother's healing. That day I smiled all day without
a frown. I was happy to play with my happy brother,
