The power of prayer

A little boy wanted $100.00 very badly. His mother told him to pray to God for it. So he prayed and prayed for two weeks: but nothing turned up. Then he thought perhaps he should write God a letter requesting the $100.00. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to God, they decided to send it to the president: who was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a cheque for $5.00. After all, this would appear to be quite a bit of money to a little boy.

The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down immediately to write a thank you letter to God:
Dear God,
Thank you very much for sending me the money. I wish you had not sent it through Washington though. Those bastards deducted $95.00.
