My Daughter`s Prayer.

My precious six year old, Helen, wanted to light a candle in the old church of St Illtyd on Caldey island.
Many pilgrims had written their petitions and placed them in the niche near the candle stand, and there was a copious supply of pens and cardboard slips for this purpose.
I gave her a pen and a slip, and this is what she wrote, verbatim :

"dear God pleese help me Be Good for the rest of my Orthodox Chrisian Life and my children when I am grown up
Amen "

I think that says it all.
What more could anyone ask for ?

PS The slip of cardboard will be living in our icon corner, as she wanted to bring it home with her :-)

Glory to God! May He hear and answer her sincere prayer. And may I have the courage to pray the same as your daughter!

Christ Is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!
