Some of you may have read this article about the prayer letters that washed up on the Jersey Shore recently.
I wish it was never written.
First, God doesn't need a letter opener. The fact that the words spilled onto the page is enough. In fact, words weren't even necessary. But some people don't think the way I do. And an unopened letter is an unopened letter, and therefore, their prayers are not heard.
I hope that instead of reading the article and feeling like the pastor they were written to neglected the prayers, that people will realize that instead, God is listening.
Afterall, the letters did end up near Atlantic City...perhaps a certain someone will wander there to find his letter and end up winning $50,000-twice.
No one ever said He doesn't have a sense of humor...
