Wrong Number

Just watched a Cooking Channel show about the barbecue competition, Memphis in May. It was interesting. Right at the end when they were announcing the winners, it had a closeup of a highlighted team holding hands and praying that they would get 4th place because then they'd qualify for next year.

Can you IMAGINE god's reaction when he picks up the phone and get's that request?

Seriously, it was bordering on blaspheme!

They didn't win. I guess God hung up on them...

Tee hee, thanks for the chuckle Penny. Brings to mind the scene in the Jim Carrey movie, when everyone's prayers are an absolute cacaphony in Carrey's mind. You would think a pair of adults could find something more important to pray about than a barbeque contest. :-)

More than a PAIR of adults. It looked like a revival meeting. I am amazed that god dared to stand up to them.
