3-year-old's Prayer

Beck loves to say the prayer.  But he doesn't really know what to say most of the time.

Dinner prayers he has down pat.

"Dear Heavenly Father, We're thankful for the food...in the bodies.  In the name of Jesus Christ, amen."

He's supposed to say something about the food being good for our bodies, but he usually skips that part and I figure Heavenly Father knows what he's trying to say.

For other prayers, Beck needs some prompting.  Last night, he said the closing prayer for Family Home Evening.  Following are my prompts verses what he actually said.  Skipping the traditional opening and closing, which he got right, here is the rest of the prayer.

M: We're thankful...
B: We're thankful...
M: for Family Home Evening.
B: for Family Home Devening.
M: Please help us
B: Please bless us
M: to have faith
B: to have Nathan
M: to choose the right.
B: to choose the right.

After that everyone was in fits of laughter, including me, and I prompted him to end the prayer.
