He was only three years old.
He would say his prayer every night, he told
“Jesus” how much he wanted a baby sister to hold!
And to love he told Jesus how much he loved Him.
And please God, if you cannot send me a sister, a brother
Will do, I promised to love and help Momma with its care,
You see “Dear God” my Momma wants one too, are you aware?

She said that You could send us one from above.
That we needed to pray and trust You with our love
There was nothing any sweeter than hearing him pray,
Asking” God” to send him a sister or brother to love
Thanking “God” for listening to his prayers,
I promised Him that I wouldn’t be bad
So please “God” don’t be mad.

When he was 6 years old ”God” sent him a baby sister.
He knelt by his bed and “Thanked God” for his sister.
You could see the love in his little face,
And the smile on his Momma’s face
His sister brought joy and happiness to their life.
He knelt by his bed to thank “God” every night,
For his prayer was answered by our “Father” on high.
I Love You Dear Jesus!
