A child’s eyes, those clear, wells of undefiled thought – what on earth can be more beautiful? Full of hope, love and curiosity, they meet your own. In prayer, how earnest; in joy, how sparkling; in sympathy, how tender! The man who never tried the companionship of a little child has carelessly passed by one of the great pleasures of life, as one passes a rare flower without plucking it or knowing its value.

There are 7 types of simple-praying people. Yesterday we saw that the second type of pray-er is one who is humble.  Today we explore the third type of Pray-er:

Child-like People.

People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”Luke 18:15-17

Children are tender, trusting and totally dependent. They have no experience, no possessions, no talents.

The key for simple-praying people is found in verse 17, “like a little child “.

Growed-up people touch people… child-like people touch God.
