Work needed on our prayer life!

We attended a local FCC (Families with Children from China) monthly dinner last night at a really neat fish restaurant on the Ohio River. They have an outside dining area with a playground so it was a great opportunity to let the kiddos romp while the parents socialized.

An aquaintance of ours has a son a couple of years older than Ryan. Shortly after dinner he became sick and threw up. Emma brought this up several times on the way home and then brought it up again as I was rocking her at bedtime. I reminded her that we needed to say a short prayer for him that he would be feeling better soon. Emma said something about the little boy's mother and to clarify, I asked if she meant that we needed to say a prayer for his mother too. She testily replied "No. You're not HIS mommy. HIS mommy needs to pray for him"!

Obviously we have some work to do ...
