Recently, Ephrem has asked to hold our hands during dinner. He looks at us and says “Hand?” until he has our hands holding his. He sits there silently for a moment and then says, “Amen!” and lets our hands go.
I never imagined that our 18-month-old would pick up on prayer like that. Honestly, it’s not like we go out of way to pray but I guess he sees that it’s important to our family and it’s something that he mimics.
Even when we are shopping with him in Target. And who can say no to an impromptu prayer session no matter where you are?
