Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher: Prayer is a Normal Part of Our Life
By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer
In the latest episode of Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher’s series, Mike and Carrie: God & Country, the famous couple talks about prayer with their children and how an authentic relationship with Jesus is the most important thing in life.
Fisher begins the episode saying being a dad is “The greatest thing ever.”
The couple gushes about how much they love their boys and how they can’t believe they have children.
Then, the former NHL player moves the conversation to what happens at their dinner table and how they play the highs and lows game with their oldest son, Isaiah.
Underwood adds how they always pray before meals and how Isaiah loves everyone in the same room when they pray.
She says prayer is, “Such a normal part of our life.”
“We have an open dialogue about God” the country music singer added.
This dialogue is evident as their children ask questions about the Lord.
“He [Isaiah] just says things like, ‘Did you know I have to love God even more than you mommy. I love God so much.”
Underwood adds that she believes he means it.
Her husband then tells a story of how he prayed over a boo-boo that Isaiah had one day.
A few weeks later, Fisher hurt himself and Isaiah came over and said, “Daddy, we need to pray.”
Fisher says Isaiah’s prayer was almost exactly like his just weeks before and that it was, “The coolest thing ever for him to initiate it [prayer].”
Fisher said someone recently asked him what his greatest fear was.
He said it would be to, “Have a child that didn’t have a real relationship with Jesus. I want my sons to see me and be like, ‘This is real, this isn’t just what he’s saying… this is like not an informed faith, this is a like a transformed faith and my dad is different.”
He added, “It can’t just be about knowing about God or about Jesus. It has to be about really following.”
