What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Baby prayers

Photo Sharing - Video Sharing - Photo Printing - Photo Books

Corynn learned the Lord's prayer, in baby form when she was two and those baby versions have long since disappeared. I always thought it was so dear to listen to it and wanted to video it, but I never did with her, since we didn't have any video capability. Now it is Andrew's turn to learn it, but this time, we DO have it!

We pray the Lord's prayer at breakfast every morning, so the repition is good practice and makes it easy to learn. Lunch time prayers are individual. First I pray, then Corynn, then Andrew. Corynn's are very elaborate and are often longer than MINE are-and always ALWAYS include health for Oma and Opa, and Andrew: his sound like this " Da Jeez fo yuv. A-bas" Translation: "Thank you Jesus for your love. Amen."

Dinner prayers are offered up by Papa.

I wanted the children to know the Lord's prayer and I wanted them to be comfortable praying aloud, something I never really was for a very long time (though I am getting better at it now that I do it with my kids.) This is why we have chosen to do it this way.

Very soon I would like to begin praying before bed too.

It is such a joy to hear my children praying. I LOVE lunchtime prayers, because I can learn what is on Corynn's heart. I often feel sorry for Matt that he misses hearing them. :-(

Anyway~this is Andrew. Up until about two days ago, he would just remain quiet while Corynn and I spoke the Lord's prayer. Then, I decided it was time for him to be included-whether he liked it or not, so we began waiting for him to say the 'last' words in the phrases. As you can see, he still doesn't get the concept of closing your EYES during prayer! As such: he was very curious what I was doing with a video camera, as you shall see.
