our little family recently got into the habit of praying spontaneously. for years, we've been praying "the angel of god" every night before bedtime. the four of us know it by heart, even when the kids were too young to pronounce the words, they knew the prayer by sound and would ramble along with the hubby and me whilst we did.
i love that these days, the spontaneous praying has become a requisite. the little big man prays in english. the little girl in tagalog. the hubby in tagalog, me in english. mostly the kids' prayers are thank yous for the good things that happened during their day. then they'd say sorry for disobeying or anything they know they did wrong. what touches me most is when they pray for each other and for their dad and me. especially their dad about our problems last year. i feel their sincerity. i have really cool kids, i know right. :)
as i write, i was supposed to relate an actual prayer but my memory is failing me. this blog entry was started last january 19 with that in mind but i was unable to finish so i'm just finishing it now. i will make sure to remember tonight's prayers so i can write them down here.
