surviving the Legion of Christ, getting a life, holding a job, and having a wife can be a pretty tall order. So we must be mindful of prayer, and keep at it. A friend sent me this edifying story.
Pray for Leroy
A preacher said, "Anyone with'special needs' who wants to beprayed over, please come forwardto the front by the altar."With that, Leroy got in line, andwhen it was his turn, the Preacherasked, "Leroy, what do you wantme to pray about for you?"Leroy replied, "Preacher, I needyou to pray for help with my hearing."
The preacher put one finger of onehand in Leroy's ear, placed his otherhand on top of Leroy's head, and thenprayed and prayed and prayed. Heprayed a "blue streak" for Leroy,and the whole congregation joined inwith great enthusiasm.After a few minutes, the preacherremoved his hands, stood back and asked,"Leroy, how is your hearing now?"Leroy answered, "I don't know. It ain't'til next week."
