When my person and I came back from our walk we found a mantis over our front door praying for us. I don’t know what a mantis is, but apparently they like to pray a lot. At least this one does because my person says it is a praying mantis.
It’s pretty cool having an insect that’s willing to hang out on top of our front door and pray. I guess that means everyone that walks through the door is blessed.
But what do insects pray for? Is it praying for me and my people, or is it praying for something for itself?
Maybe it’s praying for a little bug to fly into its waiting arms and become its next meal.
Or maybe its praying that no one will spray bug repellant around the door.
It might even be praying that it learns how to make a vase like those ants did the other day and someone will put flowers in it.
Whatever that mantis is praying for I hope it will put in one little prayer for me.
Please, oh please pray that I don’t have to sit in my “Oh no, there’s thunder” pose again.
