Three year old theology

A bed-time prayer from my three year old daughter.

“Dear Jesus, please look after Daddy, and Jesus please look after Jesus. And Jesus please look after – who’s Jesus friend? Oh yes, God. – Jesus please look after God too. Amen.”

Spent part of yesterday lecturing on how the love relationship within the Trinity was picked up by various theologians’ understanding of the image of God. Sometimes the children’s simpler ways of expressing things work best – the members of the Trinity are friends.


  1. Stephen, what a lovely prayer. Out of the mouths of babes…thanks for sharing it.

  2. God put himself in Mary’s tummy.
    Quote from a 5 year old that I used in my sermon on Sunday

    I also have a cute quote: –

    Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one”

    (Deuteronomy 6:4)
