Leroy needs prayer

Lately, I’ve felt like I needed a laugh; Bob, from St. John sent this to me. if you, like me, have a background in the Pentecostal/charismatic brand of Christianity, you’ll get a kick out of it

The preacher said, "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, come forward to the altar." With that, Leroy got in line and when it was his turn, the preacher asked, "Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?"

Leroy replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing." The preacher put his hands over Leroy's ears, and prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed a "blue streak" for Leroy, and after awhile the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm.

When the preacher finally had prayed all he could pray, he removed his hands, dried the sweat on his brow, and said, "Leroy, tell the congregation, how is your hearing?"

Leroy answered, "I don't know. It ain't 'til next week."
