Sibling Rivalry, Prayer and The Diner Table

My friend J- shared this story with me. This is what happens to kids growing up in a home where both parents are pastors.

Bobby grabs Susie's dessert fork away for the third time at the dinner table, and she coyly responds by folding her hands, bowing her head, and saying a little prayer:

"Dear God...please help Jonathan...he is such a bad boy...and we both know, God, that you love me, but not him...and he is a, God, please help him...because he just needs you so much in his life....amen."*
