A young girl sends the desires of her heart heavenward, and an incoming light seems to respond. Janice Kapp Perry’s primary song asks, "Heavenly Father, are you really there?" and in response, answers come ("A Child’s Prayer," Children’s Songbook, 12–13). These moments of connection and beauty give space on which to build faith. "Pray," the song gently chides. "He is there."

"I have had moments in my life when I felt like I truly connected with divinity, and it’s those moments that I continue to reflect upon and that keep me grounded in my faith."
