Boy prays to be like his dad 

            Once a little boy of five was alone with his father at bedtime. It had never happened before. After some manoeuvring and a lot of fun, the father finally got the little fellow into his night clothes and was about to lift him into bed when the child said, "But, Daddy, I have to say my prayers." So he knelt down beside the bed, folded his hands, raised his eyes to heaven, and prayed the usual "Now I lay me down to sleep." But tonight he took another look at his Dad, then continued to pray, "And, dear , make me a great big good like my daddy. Amen." In a moment he was in bed and within five minutes, asleep. Then the father knelt by his son’s bedside and prayed, "Dear Lord, make me a great big good , like my boy thinks I am."
