Deaf Children Pray In Sign Language—Nothing Can Shut A Worshiper!
Although deaf people might have a difficult time communicating with others using spoken language, sign language has enabled them to “speak” out. There are many different kinds of sign language but all have the same aim: for deaf people to be able to communicate.
In this touching video shared by International Christian Concern on its Facebook page, a child could be seen praying, using sign language, in front of his food with other kids could be seen playing in the background.
A short while later, the other kids joined the first one – and they, too, prayed using sign language! It is so touching to see that these kids took the time to pray “loudly” even when they could not speak.
Many of us may not be able to understand just what these kids were “saying” in their prayer yet it seems that they were doing it in earnest, praying hard that they would be provided with their needs and thanking the Great Provider for the food on their table. As you can see in the video, the food was not even much – just a large serving of rice and a small portion of viand – yet these kids showed their appreciation to the meal in front of them nonetheless. What a wonderful bunch of kids!
It does not matter that most of us are not able to understand a word of what they were signing about because God understands all languages and would surely be pleased with what these kids are doing.
