in a class of eight year-olds one Sunday morning
one boy continually would disrupt the lesson
finally the boy was taken aside
and the lesson explained to him one on one .............
the thrust of the lesson was about our friendship with God
which offers us an opportunity to ask Him for things ........
this young boy was asked if he wanted to ask God for something
he very quietly responded
"I would like to ask God to tell my dad to stop hitting my mom"
