I responded, “You are right. But I also pray in the morning to start my day and at noon in the middle of the day. And I pray at night to thank the Lord for that day.”

Caeley listened with wide eyes of interest so I continued, “I love you and talk to you throughout the day; so too, because I love my Lord, I talk to Him through prayer as often as I can.”

Her smile indicated that what I said made a connection. She understood.
