A Praying Tot

On the road during our recent trip to the Art Museum, I was getting worried that we might get caught in a traffic jam, given that it was a Friday evening.

I called out to Bubbles in the carseat behind me:
Baby, could you help Mummy pray that there wouldn't be a traffic jam please?

I meant it as a rhetorical question, and didn't expect her response!

Bubbles' 1st uttered prayer:
(said with all earnestness and in a series of questions!)
No jam?
Dear God?
No traffic jam?
Dear God?
Ok?
No traffic jam?
Dear God?
In Jesus' Name?
AMEN

Wow, thanks dear. Could you also pray that we can get a parking lot please?

Dear God?
No parking lot?

No, no, we want a parking lot, don't pray for no parking lots!

Dear God?
Want parking lot?
No traffic jam?
Dear God?
... ... ...

God answered her prayer you know :)
There was no traffic jam!
We made it in good timing AND got a perfect parking lot right next to the lift lobby.
