The Fervent Prayer of a Child
You’ve seen it. The sobbing 5-year-old kneels beside her bed and asks Jesus to help her hamster find its way home. You don’t want to say anything – knowing the smelly little rodent is gone. Then, you look down and to your absolute amazement, the escapee is squeaking at your feet. Your 5-year-old scoops Fluffy up in delight – not at all surprised. She knew Jesus would come through. But you, you’re astonished. Why would God answer a kindergartener’s request for something as absurd as a missing rodent … and not your prayers?
