Mom: Dears, please say your prayers before you sleep.

Quick muttering of “Our Father”

6YO: Mom, how can God hear when we speak?

Mom: You know dear that he is everywhere.

6YO: Why do we pray?

Mom: So he can tell you what to do.

6YO: But how can God talk to us?

Mom: Well, you cant really hear him talk but he makes you do the right things.

6YO expressing shock!: Does that mean he controls us?

Mom: Hmmm…

6YO: What if God controls me to do one thing and I do something else?

By this time this mom is wishing her mom was around!
