Never Force Children To Pray

Never Force Children To Pray

At dinner, a little boy was asked to lead the prayer.

"But I don't know how to pray," he replies.

Just pray for your family members, friends and neighbors, the
poor, etc.," says his father.

"Okay," stuttered the boy. "Dear Lord,... Thank you for our visitors and their children, who finished all my cookies and ice cream. Bless them so they won't come again.

Forgive our neighbor’s son, who removed my sister's clothes and wrestled with her on her bed.

This coming Christmas, please send clothes to all those poor naked ladies on my daddy's Blackberry and provide shelter for the homeless men who use mom's room when daddy is at work.


Dinner was cancelled.

A long as teachers give algebra tests

there will be prayer in schools.

That reminds me of the Art Linkletter show of the 1960's.

For those of you who have never seen it, Linkletter had a weekly TV show where he interviewed kindergarten aged children. They kids said the darndest things. One question he sometimes asked was "What did you mother tell you not to say?"
