Every Parent's Prayer

I have another story to share with you about my 6 1/2 year old, Abbie. I know it is every parent's prayer that what we teach them will sink in, that the prayers we pray over them will be seeds that will sprout. Abbie is only 6, but she blows me away sometimes. There is a little boy in her class that is kind of the class bully. Abbie said that he told her that he doesn't go to church, so she has been praying for him. After church on Sunday we went to lunch and she wanted to pray over the meal and this was her prayer... "Lord, bless this food, keep our family safe, and Lord I pray for Fred that You will come into his heart and that he won't pick on anyone anymore, but Lord, if he has to pick on someone, that he will pick on me.". Okay, who prays that??? Mel and I were just crying at the table listening to her pray this!! She told us that she would rather him pick on her than the other kids b/c she doesn't want him to hurt the other kids. WOW!!!! It definitely challenged me!
