One evening I brought my son David up to Gasing Ridge for prayer. Overlooking the beautiful city lights of Petaling jaya is a hilly area called Gasing Ridge. Petaling Jaya is a satellite town of Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.
On this occassion I told David, just about 3 years old, just out of his infancy but know how to pray to God. I told him not to make any request but to thank God for whatever God has done for him. He nodded. I started to thank God for His protection, His provision and also His dear divine presence with us.
Then it was his turn to pray. He said, “Thank you God for ice-cream, chocolate and sweet. Thank you God for Yaohan and 7-Eleven.” When I heard that from his little sincere heart I almost laughed aloud but I restrained myself. It was unexpected from the heart of a 3 year old child.
