Whenever I find an “petition book” in a church, I like to leaf through it. Then my gaze may get caught on a clumsy children's handwriting that simply tells us that the child went on a nice excursion with their parents and wants to share this joy. There is the elderly lady who prays for her grandchildren or people who pray for their sick parents. There is a lot of thanks to our Lord, sometimes a little cross or a few little hearts from the hands of children for God. But there is also a lot of worry and sorrow that is brought before the Lord in a few words.
