My faith in prayer is firmly founded in the fact that sometimes when I needed something, I got it. The fact that others with more desperate needs than mine went totally ignored was of no concern to me; _my_ relationship with the Universal Sovereign was secure. Let each work out his own salvation.

"O Great and Powerful Lord Jehovah, Creator and Ruler of The Heavens and The Earth and all those who live in them, please send me some peanut butter. In the name of your magical Son Jesus Christ I ask, AMEN."
god, I love peanut butter!
