Kids Say The Darndest Things

My daughter was two at the time that I put forth to her two questions. We were laying on the couch together and I was trying to get her to go to sleep, so I began to ask her questions and tell her stories to try and get her to doze off. After a while of talking, I asked "where were you before you were here." I just wanted to see what she would say. She looks up at me and answers, "Someplace dark and echoey." This took me aback for a minute because that is what I would think one would say about the womb. I assume it's dark and sounds are a bit like an echo in there. I couldn't help it, I had to ask her yet another question just to see how she would respond.
"Do you think God really hears our prayers?" I asked.
"Nope," she says.
"Why is that?"
"Cuz long ago we say not to." Speaking as a philosopher, would you say that this means we turned our backs on God long ago and in doing so, we were basically saying not to hear us anymore? I'm not certain, but it's hard not to think about, wouldn't you say?
