Fire, Rain, God and Angels...

Rowan and I were just driving to go pick Zoe up and as we drove down the road, Rowan brought up all the recent wildfires and he decided to pray for rain to help stop them. His prayer went something like this:

"Dear God, Tomorrow please don't sleep very much, just take cat naps because you have a lot to do. Send your angels to make rain over all the other states and you take the biggest...Texas. We need you to make a LOT of rain here. Thank you. I love you and will always love you, and I will always keep you in my hands."

I reached back and asked him for a high five, telling him that was an awesome prayer, but he said "Sorry, I really can't high five you because I'm making fists to keep God in my hands." I tried not to laugh while he decided, "Well, maybe I could keep him in my heart instead of my hands. That would be better right?" I told him it would, and he immediately said "OK. Do you have any tape?" I tried harder not to laugh, and reassured him that he didn't need to tape God there, all he had to do was to ask him. Here is how he asked:

"Dear God, Can you please put your heart in my heart....no- all of you- your heart, your kidneys, your bones, lungs- put all of you in there. Thank you."

Then he asked about angels and if they were "his family or his army or pieces of him or what?" I told him that angels helped Him protect us, and he said "Yeah, 'God's Protection Army', lets just call them that for now."

I don't really know what else to add to this post because Rowan said it all...I am completely amazed by his faith and understanding. I had to pull over to write some of this down immediately, because I was afraid to forget a single precious nugget of it! This was quite possibly one of the best conversations I've ever had, and it was with a 5 year old. Thank you God:-) for special car rides like this one tonight.
