BonusBoy's Prayer

Wednesday night I was lying down in BonusBoy's bed and praying with him. Here is his prayer: (he repeated each line after me)

Dear Jesus,
Thank you for this day.
Thank you for my family.
Thank you for my bed.
Please help me to sleep.
In Jesus' name,
Amen.

And then came this conversation:
BonusBoy: Jesus like talkin' a me?
Me: Yes, Jesus likes to talk to you.
BonusBoy: I need Jesus.
Me: You need Jesus?
BonusBoy: Yes, I need Jesus a hold me.
Me: Can I hold you for Jesus?
BonusBoy: Yes.
I'm holding him and then he sits up in bed...
BonusBoy: I need Tigger hold me. I no have Tigger. I need Pooh hold me.
Me: BonusBoy, lay back down on your Pooh pillow and go to sleep now.

ever since I started praying with Victoria I always used the phrase "thank you for this lovely day..." I didn't do it intentionally, it's just the way it came out. Now she begins EVERY prayer with that phrase.
