A Child’s Prayer…

 A boy stares in wonder, or in skepticism, at the "test your strength" game at the county fair

One night a Dad heard his boy praying…”Dear God, make me the kind of Man my Daddy is.”

Later that night, the Dad prayed , “Please God, make me the kind of Man my Son thinks I am.” 

One good father can secure a child’s dignity so that the entire world  cannot shake it. 

Your Dad believes in you.
