A Grandmother’s Prayer

mime-attachmentIn church last Sunday, I heard a sweet elderly lady in the pew next to me saying a prayer. It was so innocent and sincere that I just had to share it with you:

” Dear Lord:

The last four to five years have been very tough. You have taken my favorite actor – Paul Newman; my favorite actress – Elizabeth Taylor; my favorite singer – Whitney Houston, and now my favorite author – Tom Clancy.  

I just wanted you to know that my favorite politicians are – Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

  1. We know God doesn’t take(kill) people. The devil has the power of death.
    I still chuckled at the prayer. Definately need to escort these others out.

  2. Reminds me of an old joke:

    A guy finds an oil lamp, rubs it, and a genie appears, granting him the standard three wishes, with one stipulation; He said “I’ll grant you three wishes, but whatever you wish for, your wife will get two of.”

    He wishes for a mansion, the genie gives it to him, and gives his wide two mansions.

    Then he wishes for a million dollars, gets it, and his wife gets two million.

    For his third wish, he tells the genie “beat me half to death.”
