A very bright 6 year old told his dad that he’d like to have a baby brother! Dad” he said; “I’ll do whatever I can to help.” His dad, thought for a second and then said; “Son, if you pray every day for two months for a new baby brother, I believe God will give you one!” The boy went right to it with his prayers for a baby brother.
He prayed every single night for a month, but after a while he became skeptical. He asked folks around the neighborhood and found out that what he thought was going to happen, had never ever occurred in his neighborhood. Everyone told him that you just don’t pray for couple of months and then out of the thin air comes a new baby brother! So the boy quit praying.
A month later the boy’s mother went to the hospital. When she came back home, his parents called him into the bedroom. He walked timidly into the room and there was a little bundle laying next to his mother. His dad pulled back the blanket and there was not just one baby brother, but two! His momma had twins!
Dad looked down at him and said, “Aren’t you glad you prayed?” The little boy hesitated and then looked up at his dad and said, “Yep, and aren’t you glad I quit prayin when I did?”
