Why Children’s Prayers Get Answered More Than Adults

When it comes to faith children always come out on top. There is no competition between the adult world and the one of children when it comes to faith. It’s the reason why The Blessed Virgin Mary appears to them more than adults. They’re far less likely to doubt accepting what it is they’re witness to. It’s the reason Jesus loves innocence is because he Himself is innocent. Many of us view God as we do people of similar age which is to say he’s a responsible adult. Nothing could be further from the truth. God is not a child in the human understanding of the term, but he is very much like a child.

The reason prayers of children are given more of an ear is because they have great faith. They have an expectant faith which is to say when they pray they really believe and anticipate it happening. This is why I ask them to pray when out fishing so we can catch a fish. Every time they pray we catch something. Why? Because I told them that if they pray we will catch one. In the mind of a child they really believe what I told them and so pray with the expectancy of catching a fish whereas in adults we are more inclined to doubt it.

In addition to this they have a sort of humble soul pure of much iniquity that is unique when compared to adults. When we pray, even though we pray with expectancy, if it doesn’t happen its because our sins and prideful disposition hold us back.

When it comes to faith we can learn a lot from children. Remember that it’s an “expectant faith” we must possess along with right disposition of soul. You have to really believe that when you ask for it with respect to Gods will, that you will get it. Whenever you want something, be like me who is of little faith and have your children pray for it instead. The Lord really listens to them and he doesn’t joke around when he advises that unless we become like little children we cannot enter the Kingdom of heaven.
