Prayer Changed My Day

Benjamin A., age 4, Western Australia, Australia, with help from his mom

One day, I was not very happy. My throat hurt, I was angry, and I wasn’t making very good choices. At breakfast, I yelled at my mom. She sent me to my bedroom to calm down.

I was sad and angry, but then I had a good idea about what I could do to feel better. I folded my arms, bowed my head, and said a prayer. My angry feelings left, and I started to feel happy inside. When I came out of my bedroom, I told my mom I was sorry and was going to make good choices for the rest of the day.
