Pray for what you need

Tonight when I was putting the three older girls down, the 2-year-old had a hard time, as she always does since the baby came. She begged me to sleep with her, like she does every night. I discussed my little system I have with her to get her to at least try to go to sleep on her own like she used to. :) She wasn't having it. She started to cry a little bit, and I encouraged her to say her prayers. I told her that Heavenly Father can help us when we're having a hard time, and that He will give us what we need to be able to do what we have to do.

She stopped crying and folded her little arms and bowed her curly head. "Heavy Fahver, please my mommy sleep up here?"
