Old time religion...


Cowdad sends this along...

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 Thursday."


  1. Awesome. That's the kind of thing that could actually happen in my church. We do a lot of outreach to people on "the other side of the tracks" and well, we catch some interesting fish that way.

  2. Hey Inno, I can relate. Done a good bit of that type work back in the day myself.

    I'm glad we're speaking again. :)

  3. Love it! Sending to my probation officer daughter-in-law.

  4. The preacher really stuck his finger in Leroy's ear? Ewwww.


  5. Hey y'all! That was a good one. I told it at work today, and it comes out even funnier "said," than "wrote."


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
