God Works In Mysterious Ways But In This Funny Story It’s Not So Mysterious!
A young man was having a terrible year. He had lost his job, been forced to take out a second mortgage on his home, and seemed to be spiraling further and further into credit card debt.
His terrible financial situation drove him into a deep depression, and it wasn’t long before his social life was in shambles as well. At such a young age, the man felt that his future was hopeless and that he would truly need a miracle to help him climb out of this hole.
With nowhere else to turn, the young man finally decided to do the one thing he hadn’t yet tried – he prayed. He drove his car to his childhood church and found a pew in the back rows of the quiet chapel. He got down on his knees and he prayed.
“Dear God, please help me win the lottery. I really need the money, so please help me win.”
The young man waited several days and nothing happened. He returned to the church.
“Dear God, I’m not sure if you received my last prayer, but I really need your help to win the lottery. Please help me out here.”
Again, the young man waited several days with no results. He returned to the church once again.
“Alright, God, I’ve asked you twice, but it really seems like you aren’t listening to me. I asked you to help me win the lottery, but I still haven’t won. Are you even listening to me?”
What happened next truly shocked the young man. He heard a voice. Perhaps the clouds parted and God spoke from above, or perhaps a priest overheard his prayer and spoke up, but the young man finally got his answer. “BUY A LOTTERY TICKET!”
