(One little girl began her prayer like this:)
"Our Father, who are in heaven, hello! What be Thy name?"
(A boy who thought he knew the answer to that question, prayed,)
"Our Father, who art in heaven, Harold be Thy name."
(The prayer of another boy went like this:)
"Our Father who art in heaven, Hollywood be Thy name."
(A girl whose visiting uncle was a horse player
bowed her head with a plea that God)
"give us this day our daily double."
(A five-year-old girl who was trying to cope
with Sunday School and kindergarten at the same time
came up with this charming blend of Church and State:)
"Give us this day our daily bread, with liberty and justice for all."
(Another kindergarten child asked God to)
"give us this day our jelly bread."
(Then there was the little boy who prayed,)
"Forgive us our dentists, as we forgive our dentists."
(Another boy pleaded,)
"Lead us not into creation."
(Or the farmer's boy who said,)
"Deliver us from weevils."
(Another boy prayed to God to)
"deliver us from eagles."
(A 4 year old girl)
"And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us some email."
(And a boy climaxed his prayer like this:)
"For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, forever and ever, Amen and F.M."
