Found Under Prayer
Learning From a Child
A little girl was about to undergo a dangerous operation. Just before the doctor administered the anesthetic, he said, "Before we can make you well, we must put you to sleep."
The girl responded, "Oh, if you are going to put me to sleep, then I must say my prayers first."
She closed her eyes, and said:" Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake; I pray the Lord my soul to take. And this I ask for Jesus' sake. Amen."
Later on the surgeon admitted that he prayed that prayer that night for the first time in thirty years. --Donald L. Deffner, Seasonal Illustrations as cited on www.eSermons.com
