This is one of those moments I'll never forget. My grand-daughter Allison just recently turned three and if you read a previous post about her and her mother, you will know what a difficult pregnancy my daughter had while carrying her. Because of that, my daughter is not sure that she will ever want to get pregnant again even though she wants another child.
Many of Allison's friends are getting baby sisters and brothers and so she wants a baby sister too. We told her she would have to ask Jesus and so she does. Quite frequently!!!! !!
Recently she went to visit one of her friends that had just brought a baby sister home from the hospital. When Allison got to their home, she walked in and said to the new mother, "I asked Jesus for a baby sister but He didn't bring me one."
She tells everyone that she is getting a baby sister!!!! She had the ladies at day-care convinced that she was getting one. She will look up and say "Jesus can I have a baby sister?"
She missed church Sunday because she hadn't been feeling well so when church was over, we went to visit her. I was helping her wash her hands in the restroom and as I laid my hands on her I said "Jesus help Allison to feel better. Amen!
It was like a light came on in her little head and she got so excited and jumped down from her step and turned to me with those big blue eyes and said "Nanna, you ask Jesus to bring me a baby sister then say Amen!"
I said "I don't know about that" and she said "Yes Nanna, you ask Jesus to bring me a baby sister then say Amen!"
She realized the power of agreement and she was wanting me to come into agreement with her. Her mother looked at me with a look that said "Don't you dare!"
Matthew 18:19...Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
It will not surprise me if Allison eventually gets what she is praying for. I'll let you know when that prayer is answered. :)
