At dinner with friends and family Johnny was asked to say the prayer. “But I don’t know how to pray,” he replied.
“Just pray for your family, friends and neighbors, the poor, etc,” said his father.
“Okay,” the boy said.
“Dear Lord,.. Thank you for our visitors and their children, who finished all my cookies and ice cream.
“Bless them so they won’t come again. Forgive our neighbors son, who removed my sister’s clothes and wrestled with her on the bed.
“This coming Christmas, please send clothes to all those poor ladies on my Daddy’s Blackberry who do not have any clothes.
“And provide shelter for the homeless man who uses Mom’s room when Daddy is at work….AMEN”
Dinner was cancelled.

Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit . . . For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. (Matthew 12:33–34)
