On Wednesday, May 26, Siah asked Jesus into his heart!

We were driving to Button’s school to pick her up and he was talking to me about one of the boys in her after school program who ocassionally gives Siah a hard time on the playground.

“Mama, I’m going to tell him to stop being that way and instead he needs Jesus in his heart so he can be kind!”

“That’s a good idea, Siah. Have you asked Jesus into your heart?”

“Yes, Mama. Jesus is in my heart.”

“But have you ever asked him to be?”


Then he closed his eyes, put his little hands together, and – with some assistance from me – prayed something like, “Jesus, please come into my heart and live there forever. Please forgive me of all my sins. And fill me with your Holy Spirit. And protect me from the enemy. And make me strong! I love you, Amen.”

And then he was very excited!
