A Conversation

A young boy, perhaps 5 or 6 years old, climbs up on his father’s lap.  He leans his head on his father’s chest and listens quietly to his heartbeat.  After a few moments he lifts his head slightly.

“Daddy?”

“Yes?”

“I have an ouchie.  Wanna see my ouchie?”

“Sure.  Tell me about it.”

“Look. See. Can you make it better?”

“Of course I can.  You’ll see”

The father gently strokes his son’s hair and whispers something under his breath.

“Better?”

“Yeah, thanks”

The young boy leans his head back on his father’s chest and listens to his heartbeat.

“Daddy, I love you.”

“I love you too – very much.”

 

This is the conversation our Father wants to have with us – genuine and intimate.

This is prayer.
