A Child's Prayer

My sister Adalyn and I were playing with a watering hose in the back yard. We stuck it down a gopher hole about 5 feet. It got stuck really good. My sister and I thought maybe a gopher was grabbing onto it hard, but mom told me it might have been stuck between some roots. When dad got home, mom told dad, but dad didn’t believe us, so he went outside and he tugged and tugged and he couldn’t get it out. I was feeling really sad because it was the longest garden hose and mom said we might need to cut it off. I offered $3.00 but mom didn’t accept.

The next morning, I woke up about 6 am and went outside, still in my PJ’s, before anyone else was awake. I got the shovel out and dug a little more at the hole mom had started the day before, which was about 3 feet deep. I still couldn’t get the hose out. I turned on the water full blast and there was a little bit of water in the hole. I used that tiny bit of water to be my guide. I dug a little in the mud, and then I prayed to Heavenly Father saying, “Please help me to get the hose out before anyone is awake so that mommy won’t have to buy a new hose”. When I opened my eyes, there was a big pool of water. I thought the hose might be loose. I pulled on it and it came straight out. I think it must have been pushing it’s way out, but most importantly, I think that one little prayer got the hose out. I’d like to share my testimony that I know the church is true and I know that every prayer is answered.

  1. SO cute! I love this story. Just goes to show that faith and prayer are powerful tools and Heavenly Father is listening. :)
