Prayer of the Childlike

Our prayers can be a child with a case of the wants — God I need this, this, and this. Our prayers can be like a naughty child caught in the act – I am sorry for this, I am sorry for that, I am sorry when I, and…. Our prayers can be like a joyful child – thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you…. While God certainly wants us to let him know our wants, to seek reconciliation when we sin, God also loves it when we realize and celebrate the many blessings he pours on us daily.
