It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
My son-in-law, Rod, had a trip planned to the local airport. He was to meet his friend there. Rod's four-year-old son Kyle, was ecstatic when his mother shared some news with him. She told Kyle, “When Daddy is ready to go to the airport, he would like to take you along.”
A few minutes later when Kyle felt overcome with anticipation about the upcoming event. He came to Christa saying, “Mommy, I just love my daddy.” He went on to tell his mother this little story: “Mommy, last night I got out of my bed and knelt beside it. I folded my hands like this (he clasped his little hands together), and I said, ‘Jesus, I just love my daddy.’ Then I prayed for my daddy. I knelt there just like Samuel did when he had on his white robe with that rope tied around it. That’s how I prayed for my daddy.”
I can hardly think of this little story without my eyes filling with tears. How blessed I am for daddies that dearly love and care for my grandchildren. My heart nearly bursts when I listen to my grandchildren take to heart what they’re learning during their family altar times. The Word of God is quick and powerful and speaks right into the souls of even tiny children. And how thankful I am that Jesus intercedes to the Father for Kyle when he prays in earnest about his love for his daddy.

Children are amazing. We so under estimate their intelligence. There's a reason God says teach them when they are young and they shall not depart from it in their old age.
Thanks for sharing your story.
