About a month ago, Leah Greuel went into her 4-year-old son’s bedroom to check on him and noticed he was awake, which was unusual for 10:30 at night.


“Tommy, you’re awake, is something the matter?” she asked him.

Starting to cry, he put his palms over his eyes, tears running down his face.

“Mom, will you pray with me?”

“Sure, what are we going to pray about?”
