my prayer

I thought I'd share my prayer.  As much as I have been questioning all of my beliefs, I never stopped praying.  Katelyn and I say our prayers (almost) every night.  I asked her what she's thankful for that day and it's always something different.  Sometimes mommy and daddy.  Sometimes random cousins, an aunt, an uncle, a pretty day, and recently her Dora phone.  We always ask God to watch over Andrew and make sure he's happy and safe. 

I also have a special prayer that I don't say with Katelyn.  I found something similiar online after loosing Andrew.

"God, I always thought I would hold my son on my lap and tell him about you.  Now I'm asking if you will hold him on your lap and tell him about me"


  1. Oh Kerry--that prayer is heart wrenching. I am really struggling with prayer. I talk to Chase more than anything. But thank you for sharing this.

  2. I realize I need to edit this post. It's totally not true!! When I say that I never stopped praying...I certainly DID stop praying on my own. I never stopped having Katelyn pray, but I just recently started working on my own faith. It's such a struggle.

  3. That is a very moving prayer...
