The Leaky Faucet Prayer

My grandma lives alone, and it’s sometimes hard for her to do everything by herself. One day she was trying to fix the bathroom faucet. She was lying on the floor on her back, reaching up under the counter trying to get a pipe to stop leaking. I was sitting by her, watching.

I said, “Grandma, let’s say a prayer so Heavenly Father can help you.” My grandma said that was a great idea. Grandma said the prayer. It didn’t take long for the pipes to seal up tight.

Grandma told me she was thankful for my faith. It helped her to be reminded by a little girl like me.
