3-Year-Old Leading Class in Lunchtime Prayer Blessing Food Goes Viral
Mom captures heartwarming moment
A 3-year-old preschooler in Missouri was captured on video blessing "all the boys and girls around the world" before eating lunch with his classmates.
The heartwarming moment was captured by Ranisha Martin, whose son, Makhi, stood with folded hands, eyes closed, and delivers an "adorable" prayer at Transformation Christian School in St. Louis.
"It don't get no better than this," Martin said of the video.
"I really do adore this kid," she added.
The video has since gone viral, being viewed millions of times.
Makhi led teacher Mrs. James and classmates, who repeated after him:
"Father God, we thank you for this food."
"We ask you to bless it, make it nourishment to our body."
"Bless all the boys and girls all over the world to receive food."
"In Jesus' name."
Makhi's mom said she was "shocked" to hear how clearly he recited the prayer.
"[I think] people were touched to see a little kid praying," Martin told Good Morning America.
She and her husband, Darnell, we're impressed with their baby boy.
Makhi said, "thank you so much" following all of the positive comments and shares his video got on social media.
