Small Devotions

When Little Boys Pray

Photo by nappy on


When little boys kneel by their beds

And fold their hands and bow their heads

And shut their eyes and start to pray

I don’t think God is far away.

I think He listens with intent

To any message that is sent

By little boys who kneel at night;

I think God tries with all His might

To answer prayers that small boys make

In His Son’s name, for His Son’s sake.
