“God can you please make me into a Television?”
( A 6 year old child’s prayer to God that I over heard.)
Dear God, transform me into a Television. I want to live like the TV in my house.
In my house, the TV is very valuable. Both my parents sit around it. They are very interested in it.
When the TV is talking, my parents listen to it very happily.
They don’t shout at the TV. They don’t quarrel with the TV. They don’t slap the TV. So I also want to become a TV.
The TV is the centre of attraction in my house. I too want to receive the same special care and attention that the TV receives from my parents.
Even when it is not working, the TV has a lot of value.
When my dad and mom come home, they immediately sit in front of the TV, switch it on and spend hours watching it.
The TV is stealing the time that I would have spent with my dad and my mom. If I become a TV, then they will spend their time with me.
While watching the TV, my parents laugh a lot and they smile many times.
I want my parents to laugh and smile with me also. So please God make me a TV.
And last but not the least, if I become a TV, surely I can make my parents happy and entertain them.
Lord I won’t ask you for anything more. I just want to live like a TV. Please turn me into a Television.
I wish you a happy Thursday today!
