Prayers are an important part of our bedtime routine and Bryce never lets us forget.  We normally read a bedtime story together and then he picks a book to take to bed with him.  Now before he picks his book to take to bed he always tells us we have to pray first!  He has been praying at dinner for a long time, but we just recently started saying prayers before going to bed.  At dinner he says the prayer he learned at church, "God is great, God is good, let us thank him for our food, by his hands we all are fed, give us Lord our daily bread, amen". Sometimes he says his own, "Dear God, thank you for our food, amen".
He doesn't normally get down on his knees to pray, but tonight Jason and I were laying on the floor so we put our heads down on the floor and he wanted to be like us!  Each night we ask him who he wants to pray for and he usually says me or Jason, another family member, or one of his friends.  We used to say the prayer and he would repeat it, but now he says his own prayer.  

Tonight he wanted to pray for Dada.  He prayed his normal prayer, "Dear God, thank you for Dada, amen".  When he was done he decided he wanted to pray for me too.  This time he said "God is great, God is good, let us thank him for Mama".  Jason and I both cracked up.  We thought it was hilarious he incorporated his dinner prayer into his bedtime prayer!
