Child-like Faith: Pray with Honesty and Belief

I love to listen to my older son pray out loud.  He just speaks to God, as if he is certain God is listening; he speaks as if God is sitting next to him; he prays the way he would speak to a friend. There is something honest and unprepared about his prayers. Listening to him pray, you are convinced that he is convinced that someone is listening.

That is the way children pray, I think. With honesty and in belief. That is the last of the 12 characteristics of a Child-like faith - to pray with honesty and in belief.

What if we prayed like that? What difference would it make to our prayer lives if we prayed like a child prays?
