I am your little prayer rock,
And this is what I will do.
Just put me on your pillow,
until the day is through.
When you turn back the covers,
And climb into your bed, CKLUNK!
You’ll surely hit me with,
your sleepy little head.
So get up and say your prayers,
And when you’re prayer is done,
Just dump me on the floor,
Where I will bother no one.
Until you wake next morning, then WHACK!,
You’ll stub your toe,
and you will think to say your prayers
before out the door you go.
Then put me back on your pillow,
When your little bed is made,
And your clever little prayer rock
Will continue in your aid.
Because your Heavenly Father
Cares and loves you so,
He wants you to remember,
To talk to him you know.
