Pray for Leroy

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 be 
prayed over, please come forward 
to the front by 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 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?" 
Leroy answered, "I don't know.  It ain't 
'til next week."
