This story is just too precious.

A bedtime ritual for a South Carolina toddler is touching the hearts of thousands across the internet.

Kathryn and Caleb Whitt, of Seneca, South Carolina, were rushing to get their daughter, Sutton, in bed on Sunday night and skipped over the ritual of bedtime prayers.

Just like many Carolinians on Sunday night, the couple was cheering on the Panthers in the NFC championship game and didn’t want to miss the end of it.

We started hearing noises upstairs,” said Kathryn Whitt, a preschool teacher. “We then pulled up the baby monitor on my cell phone and hit record.”

To the surprise of her Mom and Dad, 2-year-old Sutton was reciting her prayers all by herself.

Normally, the toddler rushes through her prayers at bedtime, taking roughly 20 seconds to recite everything. But on this night, she spent a little bit more time.

In the video, the toddler thoughtfully calls out the names of the people that she’s praying for and says thanks many times. Sutton mentions everyone from her grandma to her parents to even Santa Claus.

Kathryn Whitt was just able to capture the last portion of her daughter’s two-minute prayer.

“I was just shocked at her age that she wanted to think through everyone she wanted to pray for,” her mother said.

The toddler ends off her prayers by mentioning her parents again before ending with a big amen.

The video was shared on Facebook and was meant for family and friends, but has been shared thousands of times!

At first, Kathryn Whitt debated whether or not to post the video, but once she did she was overwhelmed by the positive responses.

“Almost immediately people from all over were sending us messages saying that this touched their hearts.”

As for Sutton, she joined her Mom at work this week, where people asked for her autograph.

“She knows she is part of something big, but doesn’t know exactly what,” Kathryn Whitt said.

Prayer time in the Whitt house has changed since Sunday’s video went viral, Sutton’s mother said.

The toddler is now eager to pray before bedtime!
