I told my son tonight about the shooting. As we said prayers tonight he said,
“Dear Lord in Heaven, I pray for the bad people out there that they would have joy and happiness so that they stop doing such evil things.”
Wow, it takes the simplicity of a child to ask God for something that seems so obvious and yet I totally missed it. I prayed for the ones hurting from all the killing. Yet, my son thought of praying for the ones who are doing such horrible acts.
Something in me tells me that my son’s prayer was heard tonight and the world just became a better place. Isn’t it crazy that a 8 year old can change the world through one small prayer?
God always flips things upside down.
