Reagan has really taken an interest in saying her own prayers, both at meals and before bed. They can be quite simple or, at times, rather elaborate. But they are most certainly sincere and heartfelt. Here's a sampling:
"Dear Lord, thank you for our food. And thank you for our beautiful smiles . . . and our beautiful voices--our whisper voices and our calling voices and our singing voices . . . "
"Dear Lord, thank you for taking away my fear in the Halloween store . . . "
"Dear Lord, thank you for a great Thursday! And thank you that you are the best God!"
"Thank you that you gave us Jesus, for Him to die on the cross so that we could go to heaven."
As Reagan would say, it "just swells my heart to pieces" to hear those tiny prayers.
