durning dinner prayers, i thought that other things should be included to be blessed along with the beloved food...namely the silverware, the cups, the table its self, and other random objects like the icky car we had i named 'blueberry' bcuz it was blue, cuz i was scared if i didnt theyd kill me whilst i was sleeping...
When my sister was little and we would have to say the Lord's prayer in church, she would say "Our Father who art in heaven, Al would be his name" instead of "Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be his name".
When I was younger, I had a stuffed dog named Shaggy. When people told me that God would give me anything that I wanted if I prayed hard enough, I took it a bit too literally. I used to pray every night that Shaggy would come alive! I truly believed he would. I was very disappointed when every morning he was still stuffed.
I believed that "Our Father, who art in heaven" was about my own father, who had died when I was 2. I never realised the reference was to God until I was about 10
One night my aunt was outside of my 6-year old cousin's door listeneing to her say her prayers, then burst out laughing when my cousin began with, "our father, who farts in Heaven..."
I used to think that God was called Harold, as the Lord's Prayer contained the line "Our Father who art in Heaven, Harold be thy name"
I used to believe that when you prayed, your hands acted like an antenna. So whenever I prayed I put my hands together and pointed them straight up to make sure they got to God and didn't go the other way
I always wanted rainbow-colored eyes because I dont like my original eye color. My dad told me "God grants your every wish if you pray to Him." I was so excited then I prayed and prayed that I wanted rainbow colored eyes then I checked the mirror every minute if I have it yet. It never worked then I told my dad God is fake!!!
My parents used to say prayers with me before bed. Somehow the phrase "Father, Son and Holy Ghost" turned into "Father, Son and Hallway Ghost" in my head. The thought terrified me; if I absolutely had to walk down the hallway alone at night, I'd run to the light switch, turn it on, then run to my bedroom and jump in bed.
I still feel funny walking down the hallway at night.
My father told me God always stare down at each people all over the world from heaven 24/7 . I always think I have been monitored by God the entire time and he watched my every move. When I have to go to bathroom, changing clothes,or shower I always prayed to God not to look at me until I'm finished.
When I was learning the Lord's Prayer, I used to say, "Our Father, who does art in heaven...."
During the early 1980's I attended a Catholic pre-school. We would always say the "God is Great" prayer before eating lunch. When we reached the part of the prayer thanking God for "gift's so great", I was sure Sister was saying "thank you God for disco great"! Move over John Travolta!
This is my mothers:
When she was young, she went to a Catholic school, and one of the prayers that they had to say mentioned that God "livest and reignest, forever and ever, amen". My mother was very shocked to hear that God "livest down drainest" and wondered why he couldn't have picked a more pleasant spot to reside, being God and all.
I used to think that in the Our Father prayer, when everyone was saying "Lead us not into temptation;" they were saying "Lead our snot, into ten stations." I believed this until i was about nine.
As a child, I heard of the famous question from HIndu philosophy,"Who shall here declare it?", I thought they were saying "Who shall hear the claret?" My answer, I thought was "No one -- claret makes no sound."
when i was little, i believer that prayers were send in letters. so if i forgot something in my last prayer i would say: in my last letter i forgot to tell you.....
When I was a child (up untill about age 12) when we would say the blessing at the dinner table, the prayer would go "let us thank him for our food", i always thought that it went "lettus thank us for this food", it made sense to me, since we were eating, and it said "lettus"
I thought that 'Our Father, witch art in heaven..' meant that there were hags up there with pointy hats and broomsticks, making spells around cauldrons.
when I was about 4 years old it was easter and I thought easter was about the easter bunny. My mom was very religious though and tried to explain the real reason for easter. she told me that jesus had died for us. that night as we went to say grace i said thats okay we dont need to pray God is dead.
When my brother was about 4 he used to pray "Gentle Jesus, meek & mild look upon this little child. If I die before I wake I pray the Lord my soldiers take"
