Someday I'll be strong enough to make the church bells ring and when my voice grows steady I can help the choir sing somehow I can be useful so put me to the test I know I can't do very much but, Lord, I'll do my best Last night, just at bedtime I looked in upon my son and the picture I saw as I stood there was surely a blessed one proudly I watched and listened to all he tried to say cause it makes my heart just burst with pride when I hear my children pray And he said dear Lord. I'm just a little boy and I don't know how to pray for so many of your people have slowly turned away well, maybe there's something I can do to help in your great plan I know I can't do very much but I'll do the best I can couldn't I light the little candles or maybe sweep the pews I'll do anything dear Lord just so long as it's for you why, I could open up the doors or dust your sacred saints I know I could do something if you'll just hold my hand Yes, proudly, I stood and listened to all he tried to say and it makes my heart just burst with pride when I hear my children pray I know I can't do very much but, Lord, I'll do my best.

It seems only a short time ago that Scotty was small like this little boy. He is almost 46 years old, and has two boys of his own. Quinton is now 21 years old and serving in the Air Force. And Brock is 10 year old.
I remember when Scotty would kneel by his bed to say his night time prayers. And asking God to take good care of Mommy,Daddy, his Grandpa's ,his Grandma's ,every Aunt, Uncle ,Cousins, and whatever doggie he owned at the time. And to please bring him a little Sister or Brother. And God did answer so many of Scotty's prayers.
He could pray the longest prayers for a child. I am so glad that I didn't rush him.
Time goes by so fast and our children are gone. They are all grown up with children of their own. It is hard to not see our children and grandchildren much. But more than anything I pray that our Grandchildren will be on their knees and pray. So Scotty can have the same memories that I have when he hears his boys pray.
