Why we pray

Each morning after our devotion, we take turns praying for each other.  This was today.

Dan:  Jonah, what do you want us to pray for you about today?

Jonah:  Well, I really just don't want to get in trouble today.  I need to stay focused and get my work done.  And, I just need to stay out of trouble.

Me:  (obviously concerned)  Jonah, have you been getting in trouble at school?

Jonah:  No, why?

Me:  Because you just said all of that like you had been in trouble.

Jonah:  No, I don't want to be in trouble.  That's why we are praying, isn't it?
