  1. Amazing how children can be so bold! It melted my heart.

    At our church we have a youngster who is unafraid to speak up & ask for prayers. She wasn’t even afraid to get baptised in front of the entire church, although small. I just love the sweetness of these kids!

    Wish I could be more like them!

  2. “…the pastor joined her where she was.”
    Beautiful. An example to us.
    Whether it’s a child or an adult, too often someone ventures forth with a request and we correct, change, advise, preach…..all sorts of things other than prayer. A person asks for prayer. We are but to join them in that prayer and make the journey together.

  3. Truly, it was a moment of awe for us.

    Thank you all for your kind words in reguards to my little sweetie. We always tell people that she is going to “Rock it for Jesus” one day- only to realize~ she already is!!

  4. Oh, don’t we have so much to learn from this? To be so brave and make the whole world stop and see your needs. . .why do we, adults struggle with letting our needs be known?

  5. How beautiful of you Layla to speak with such courage. I truly admire and learn from the faith of a young child. Bless her!
