    prayer joke

    I had just finished clicking to post in the members only forum where a discussion is going on regarding prayer and the joke below dinged in on my e-mail. I couldn't resist posting it.

    <<The story is told of a man who got a permit to open the first tavern in a small town. The members of a local church were strongly opposed to the bar, so they began to pray that God would intervene. A few days before the tavern was scheduled to open, lightning hit the structure and it burned to the ground. The people of the church were surprised but pleased- until they received notice that the would-be tavern owner was suing them. He contended that their prayers were responsible for the burning of the building. They denied the charge. At the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, the judge wryly remarked, "At this point I don't know what my decision will be, but it seems that the tavern owner believes in the power of prayer and these church people don't.">>

    A wise Judge, just calling it as he sees it.
