Child's Prayer

In cleaning out a box of junk, I found a napkin on which I recorded the following prayer:


Yesu sama, kono shokuji wo naoshite kudasai.
Kono tabemono wo tabete kudasai.  Amen.

Jesus, Please fix this meal.
And please eat this food.

It's funnier in Japanese.  And it would be an even better story if I noted here which one of the kids said this and when.  But alas, I left those details unrecorded.  Ah well, it's a relief to know that if we can't be bothered to eat our own food, we can always ask Jesus to do it for us.
