This is the story of Mattie’s answered prayer, as told by her. Mattie Crabtree is seven years old and shared this with me one Sunday afternoon after she had been in Kid’s worship.
“Mom, Jesus answered my prayers today for the first time! I was wanting to help clean up like the big kids. I asked Ms. Donna what there was that I could do to help and she told me that there was nothing right then that she could see to do. So I asked Jesus to show me a way I could help. I was on my way back to my seat and I saw a pile of papers on the floor that needed to be picked up! So Jesus had that pile there for me so I could help, Mom! I asked Him to show me something I could do to help and He did that for me!”
