"Thank you Daddy and Mama and Daddy and Dad and Mommy."

These are the words of 2-year-old Sutton who, thanks to the magic of baby monitors, was overheard by her parents saying a long prayer after they put her to bed. Though they may not sound like the makings of an eloquent prayer, we're pretty sure their simplicity makes them all the more sincere.

"Thank you, um, Robert ... Thank you Grandma...Thank you, um ... "

"We put Sutton to bed about an hour ago and then heard noise coming from her room," Sutton's mother Kathryn Whitt wrote in her Facebook post of the video. "We turned on her baby monitor and found her praying! Wish we could have gotten the whole thing recorded."

And as she told FOX Carolina, "We were shocked at how long her prayer was when we captured this because she rushes through her prayers with us every night."

Of course, no prayer this sweet is complete without a resounding and celebratory amen.
