One evening, a little girl was saying bedtime prayers with her mother. “Dear Harold, please bless Mother and Daddy and all my friends,” she prayed. “Wait a minute, interrupted her mother, “who’s Harold?” “That’s God’s name,” was the answer. “Who told you that was God’s name?” asked the mother. “I learned it in Sunday school, Mommy. ‘Our Father, Who art in heaven, Harold be Thy name.'”
