Yesterday, we were driving to the store and he wanted to have the conversation again. I started to explain what he needed to pray to go to heaven. He told me that he prayed the "God our Father" prayer (which is a song the kids sing at church to bless their snack time). I told him that this was a good prayer, but not the prayer he needed to pray to be able to go to heaven. I again told him what he needed to pray. He told me he was scared to pray that and asked me to pray it with him. I of course said I would. I guided him through praying that he was sorry for the wrong things he did, that he believed in Jesus, and that he was thankful that Jesus died on the cross for him, and he repeated them after me. I was so emotional and happy, but I was driving the whole time. I immediately made a wrong turn after his prayer because I was so excited. I am so thankful for Ryan and his heart and that he asked me to pray with him. There is no greater thing that I can wish for my children than for them to accept their salvation and to become Christians. I am so grateful for this moment.
Ryan became a Christian June 8th, 2010
