This morning I informed Joel, our 9 year old, that we were going to learn to pray more. The first thing we would do when beginning a prayer is to tell God His attributes. So we started to pray.
"Dear Heavenly Father, we are coming to you to tell you of your great attributes," I began.
"What are attributes?" my son asked, whispering into my ear. " I forgot already."
"Characteristics. Things about Him," I answered, also whispering.
"Oh, okay," he said to me, and then continued praying--loudly, "And dear God, you are bullet-proof!"
