And,
whatever
you ask
in My Name
that I will
do,
that the
Father
may be
glorified
in the
Son.
[John 14:13]
**********************
"This book, Lord....
says, that I can't
pray about my toilet."

[CALM VOICE.]
"What is wrong
with your toilet,
My precious."

"WELL.....
NOTHING:
right NOW!"
(Impatient squirm.)
"But, these low-WATER
TOILETS*....get clogged
UP, so FAST! Every
now and then, I GOTTA
pray about IT!"

[WISE NOD.]
[PATIENT VOICE.]
"I understand,
My most precious."

(Impatent whine.)
"Yeah;
but, this BOOK says
that I SHOULDN'T!
It says that I should
only PRAY, according
to THREE CATAGORIES,
LORD!"

[NOD.]
"Tell Me,
sweet child."

"Eh......
either 1) if it will
bring glory to GOD,
or 2) if it has anything
to do with the Great
COMMISSION**.....
or 3) if it will bring
glory to the name of
JESUS......!"

[NODDING.]
[GAZING AT THE
VOLCANO OVER ICELAND***.]
"Ah."
[NOD.]

"SO?
Where does my
TOILET...fit IN?"

[BURST OF GENTLE
LAUGHTER FROM
THE RIGHT SIDE
OF THE THRONE.]
[PATIENT FROWN
FROM THE LEFT
SIDE.]

"Ya know what I MEAN?
You KNOW...I always
say a quick PRAYER,
while I'm using the
PLUNGER!"

[CHUCKLING.]
[NOD.]
[PATIENT SIGH.]

"And, this guy
said that before
saying any PRAYER...
we should ask,
'Would JESUS pray
about THIS?'."

[SOLEMN NOD.]
"Hm, hm.
Go on,
little one."

(Irritable whine.)
"Yeah, but...
they didn't HAVE
TOILETS,
in JESUS' DAY!
So, how do I KNOW,
if He would'a PRAYED
about THAT?"

[PATIENT SIGH
OF A FATHER
SMITTEN WITH
HIS BELOVED
CHILDREN.]
[GLANCE TO HIS
RIGHT.]
[SHAKE HEAD.]
[SIGH.]
"It is a Mystery,
My most precious."

(Thoughtful squirm.)
"So....what HAPPENS
to all those OTHER
prayers: the ones
that don't FIT IN....
to all those CATAGORIES?"

[PAUSE.]
[BLOWING SOME
WIND OVER THE
VOLCANO.]
"They come to
Me,
child."

"Yeah,
BUT......!"

"They
all
come
to
Me."
***********************
And,
whatever things
you ask
in prayer,
believing,
you will
receive.
[Matthew 21:22]

*The trick is to buy
the cheapest toilet
paper;
"Scott's 1000 Sheets" is very good:
doesn't do much, but
doesn't clog up the
toilet, either.
**To preach the Gospel
of Jesus, and make
disciples, of all the
earth.
***Or, is it GREENLAND?
FINLAND? SWEDEN?
It was one of those
FJORD-places:
with all the letters
of the alphabet in it.
WEIRD: whoever
thought volcanoes
happened in COLD
places? Somehow,
volcanoes that happen
in HAWAII...are lot
more ROMANTIC.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
