Preschooler's Prayers

Each month in our class we get to ask our kids what they’d like to talk to God about. We tell them they can (1)ask God something (2)Tell God sorry about something (3)Tell him how good he is or (4)Tell him thank you for something. It’s one of my favorite things we do. I thought I’d share some of their 3 & 4 year old prayers:

Dear God, I like dogs because you throw something and they fetch it. I like cats because they lick sometimes. 

Dear God, Thank you for all the creatures that live on the earth.

Dear God, please make my really, really, really, really, really, grandma feel good.

Dear God, Thank you for the rain and the thunder.

Dear God, God is in heaven.

Dear God, you are mighty.

Dear God, thank you for the rainbows.

Dear God, I love you and I love your son. Thank you God for this whole world.

Dear God, thank you so much for my sparkly shoes you gave me. Cuz they are so sparkly.

Dear God, Sorry for hitting someone.

It’s a blessing to hear little ones talk to God. Sometimes they have simple sweet (yet very trusting) prayers other times they talk about sparkly shoes. ;) For more on preschoolers and prayer go here and here.
