Prayers

Tanner's prayers have been getting longer lately...and more specific.

For a while now, his prayers have been more of the follow after mommy and daddy type. Or he had the standard meal time and bed time prayers without much variation.

But I have noticed that has started to change. He has been thanking God for specific things that happen - usually the fun, out of the ordinary events! And he has also started asking for very specific things.

Last night his prayer consisted of two specific prayer requests:

1. Please let us go to the beach...next week!

2. Please give mommy a baby...a baby sister!!

I give a hearty AMEN to both of those requests.
