Heart cry

Our 8yo prays some amazing prayers from the heart. Occasionally they are startlingly brilliant and theologically astute. This one was so sweet I had to write it down:

“Dear God,

     Please heal Mommy of the cancer

        and take it out of her body

           and send it to outer space

              so that no one else can catch it.

       [Long pause]

       Except maybe astronauts who probably won’t catch it because they’re in a suit.
