Little Scouter's Prayer

I stopped by Catherine's blog and found this nugget. It was so apropos to what I had experienced that night and I shared it with her in a comment. I thought I'd share it with you also.

One of our darling girls was wrapping up the evening in American Heritage Girls and ended her prayer this way, "...and Lord, you don't want to hear all the blah, blah, and regular stuff. You just want to be our friend. Thanks. Amen."

Of course, that elicited a few chuckles and knowing nods, but like Anne Shirley's quote in Catherine's blog and the little scouter's prayer, He does want a relationship with us...not just prayers.

Thank goodness for that!
