Pray for Leroy

Pray for Leroy

It was Sunday morning, and the preacher was very satisfied with
the good turnout. He was especially pleased to see Leroy sitting in the
front row. Leroy hadn’t been to services in several years.

After his usual lengthy sermon, the preacher made his usual
offer: “Anyone with ‘special needs’ who wants to be prayed over, please
come forward to the front by the altar.”

And Leroy leapt up to be first in line!

“Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?” the preacher
asked.

Leroy replied, “Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my
hearing.”

The preacher certainly had experience with that! He put one finger of
one hand in Leroy’s ear, placed his other hand on top of Leroy’s head,
and then prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed a “blue streak” for Leroy, and the whole congregation joined in
with great enthusiasm.

After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and
asked, “Leroy, how is your hearing now?”

“I don’t know, preacher,” Leroy answered. “My public defender sez it
ain’t ’til next week.”
