Johanna's First Prayer

I pray with Johanna every night before putting her to bed. Usually I thank God for the day and whatever good happened that day, ask for a good night's sleep and then ask Him to bless "Grandma, Mommy, Johanna and all the little children everywhere."

Last night Johanna was sleeping with me. Several minutes after we prayed she asked if I wanted to pray again. I told her no and asked if she wanted to pray. She folded her hands and closed her eyes. I guessed that meant she wanted to pray. She just lay there so I finally told her to say "Thank you God." Her prayer went something like this.

"Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God. Xavie, Pandy, today, safe, Grandma, popcorn, sleep, Pandy, safe, Grandma, Xavie, today, friends, popcorn, etc . . .
When she stopped I told her to say "Amen". It was was the cutes thing. She just said a bunch of words that I have used in our prayers (except popcorn). It didn't make much sense to me but I'm sure it did to her and I KNOW God understood.
