Eli's Prayer

Today we went to the Zoo and there were a couple of people dressed up in Fisher Price character costumes. One of them was this huge red monster (looked like the Hulk, but red), and Eli was infatuated with him. He loved to go up and punch him over and over! Thankfully, the monster played right along.

So as always, I asked Eli who he wanted to pray for tonight when we said bedtime prayers and he listed off the "usual" long list of friends/relatives. After we prayed for them he said, "Oh! I forgot to pray for the red man!"

This is the prayer that ended our night:
"Dear Jesus, thank you for the red man. Thank you that I could go punch, punch, punch. Thank you for the red man. In Jesus name, Amen."


  1. Priceless! I'm sure the red man needed prayers after being beat up all day!

  2. Hilarious!!! It's like he is thanking God for indians.... =)
