Dear Lord, grant me the wisdom to ignore
bill collectors, Italian Operas, Dr. Phil, ex-wives' threats, Infomercials, lost puppies, check
engine light, George W. Bush, music, well-
meaning friends, exercise, the neighbor's wife,
balancing my check book, and Reality Shows.
Also Merciful Lord, can you speak a bit louder at
the Lottery Ticket store when You're giving me this weeks winning numbers? It's not that I'd
doubt your ability and foresight when the numbers
are'nt picked, but I can't seem to recall them all when I'm getting a Lap Dance at the local strip joint and you decide that it's my turn to
win. Lord God, if you're watching the World Cup
and I'm sure that ye are, I've got a thousand
bucks on You-Know-Who with 30 to 1 odds. Of course You'll get your usual ten percent at church the next Sunday and if You've noticed me
a bit short these past couple of Sundays it's all
because they've extented Happy Hour at the pub an
extra hour and I'd be a shoe-in for Hell if I passed on that!
And Lord, just one more thing if You will? If it's true about all the little children starving
all over the world, how come they haven't ate
Sally Struthers yet? 'Tis a real injustice, but
so are taxes, Pay-Per-View TV, and gravity.
I ask this in Your name Lord and will expect Your
reply before my bookie calls. Amen
