A video of a three-year-old boy is warming hearts as he says grace before eating his lunch.

His mother, Ranisha Martin posted the sweet moment onto her Facebook page where it has since been viewed millions of times.
‘You getting so big now and you making me so proud. I really do adore this kid! It don’t get no better than this!’ she wrote online.
Martin was in the classroom of his Christian school to help celebrate her son’s third birthday. She said that it was the first time she had ever heard her son pray so clearly.
‘Bless all the boys and girls all over the world,’ the youngster can be heard saying.
‘I was very shocked,’ Martin said to Good Morning America. ‘I think people were touched to see a little kid praying.’

‘Bless all the boys and girls,’ he said, ‘all over the world,’ Makhi said. He will be blessing someone else in just a few months time as he is destined to become a big brother
Martin said she was very impressed that her little boy was able to memorize the prayer but says that it is consistent with his ‘great personality.’
‘He’s very smart,’ she said to GMA. ‘He’s obsessed with dinosaurs. He can name all the dinosaurs and something special about them. He can tell you his birthday, his mom and dad’s names, where he lives… he can tell you everything.’
Makhi was pictured with a cupcake to celebrate his special day soon after the video was taken.
He will soon have another little person to pray for, as he is set to become a big brother in July.
