Faith of a Child: Toddler’s Bedtime Prayer Caught on Monitor

When two-year-old Sutton’s parents skipped over the ritual of bedtime prayers, the child took it upon herself to recite them on her own. Her mom, Kathryn Whitt, posted, “We put Sutton to bed about an hour ago and then heard noise coming from her room. We turned on her baby monitor and found her praying!”

In the video, Sutton thoughtfully calls out the names of the people she’s praying for and says thanks many times. She mentions everyone from her grandma to her parents to Santa Claus. Whitt was only able to capture the last portion of her daughter’s two-minute prayer. “I was just shocked at her age that she wanted to think through everyone she wanted to pray for,” she said.

The toddler finishes up her prayers by mentioning her parents again before ending with an “amen.”

How absolutely precious is this?!?

    I was putting my four-year-old cousin to bed one night and doing her routine. After I said a prayer, I asked her if she wanted to say anything. Boy did she! She thanked God for all sorts of things and repeated things several times. I finally had to stop her so she would actually go to sleep! 🙂 I’d like to think it wasn’t just that she was stalling from going to bed, but it was still so cute!
