In the past, I never attended because it was all I could do to get Jonah fed, dressed and out the door in time for Sunday School. I started teaching a new Sunday School class in March and made the decision to start going to prayer time with Dan. So, we all load up and head out the door by 8:30 a.m. each Sunday. We made the decision to take Jonah with us and let him pray too. We know his attention span is about 7 seconds but you've gotta start somewhere, right?
We always move to the back row and pray together with Jonah then I whisk him out so Dan can pray more specifically. Today, I was a few steps behind them as Jonah knelt down by the back pew. Dan knelt next to him and my heart just melted. I've been a part of praying with them a lot but just seeing that moment was so special. For so long, we prayed FOR this child...now we have the opportunity to pray WITH this child.
