Their parents are very proud of them.

Most parents who are religious like to teach their children about their religion from an early age. Some of the ways they do that are by teaching them to pray, taking them to church services, and reading religious texts to them. When kids are too young to talk, it’s hard to determine if they are understanding or catching on.

Two parents just realized that everything they have been saying and teaching their child has been worth it.

They were preparing to feed their young daughter in her high chair. Before they started, they wanted to teach her the importance of saying grace over a meal.

The little girl is very young, and you wouldn’t think she would even understand what it means to pray. Her parents have been teaching her well, though. As soon as her father says that it is time to pray, she sticks out her little hand and closes her eyes.

She sits quietly while her dad prays over their food.

When her father finishes the prayer, he says “Amen.” The baby repeats it in an adorable little baby language. Then, she is ready to eat. She has clearly done this a time or two. The fact that she can understand the process as little as she is is simply amazing.

This isn’t the only young child who knows the value of prayer.

Two other parents were shocked when they overheard their young daughter saying her nighttime prayers over the baby monitor. They had been praying with their daughter, but they had never heard her say them on her own before.

Now, she has made it a habit. Every night, her parents put her to bed and listen closely while she says her prayers. Her mother explained that both parents do pray with the little girl almost every night.

On the night they first heard their daughter, they put her to bed and didn’t do any prayers with her.

They really didn’t think much of it, but apparently, this little lady couldn’t go to sleep without saying them. If her parents weren’t going to say them with her, she was just going to have to do it herself. Her mother said:

“We didn’t do the prayers and didn’t think anything of it. We then heard on the monitor that she just decided to do them on her own. We were amazed by it because she usually rushes through the prayers. We’ll have to say, ‘OK Sutton, say thank you for this person and that person,’ but as you see on the video, she was naming everybody.”

They were surprised by how thorough her prayers were.

She had a lot of people that she wanted to pray for, and she wasn’t holding anything back or forgetting anyone. Her mom added:

“She never forgets anybody’s name. She’s so sweet and kind-hearted. That’s just the type of person she is. And this video is just a way to see that. It shows her heart works.”

Sutton’s parents are happy that their daughter has really been learning when they are praying with her and that she cares enough to say her prayers at night even when they aren’t there to remind her.

Her mom shared the video of her daughter saying her prayers online and was shocked by how popular it was. She wanted to share it with friends and family, but she never expected it to go viral.

She is proud of her little girl, though, and happy that she is touching so many others.

She said:

“We’re overwhelmed, but we are definitely enjoying it. We’ve already received so many emails and messages from people saying how this video has touched their lives.”

These videos just go to show you that kids are always listening and learning. Even when they seem to be messing around or not interested in what we are telling them, they are still taking it all in like little sponges.

Please SHARE this with your friends and family.
