A Kid's Prayer

I asked the kids at dinner who wanted to pray.

Anna's hand went up and she said, "Whoever prays gets to have more oranges if they only have two." I looked down on her plate and saw....two orange slices left.

She bows her head, folds her hands and prays
"God is good
By His hands
I want my uncle not to go
on the ambulance
And thank you for our food. Amen"

She finishes her prayer and looks at the bowl of oranges saying, "Can I have some? I can get them myself?"

Later I asked what her uncle's name was. She replied, "Just Uncle."
