A Child's Prayer

While walking through the woods one day, 
I was surprised to hear a child's voice. 
I followed the sound, trying in vain to understand the child's words. 
When I spotted a girl perched on a rock, I realized why
her words had made no sense: She was repeating the alphabet.

"Why are you saying your ABC's so many times?" I asked her.

The child replied, "I'm saying my prayers."

I couldn't help but laugh. "Prayers? All I hear is the alphabet."

Patiently the child explained,

 "Well, I don't know all the words, so I give God the letters. 
He knows what I'm trying to say."
