Top 10 things you don't want to hear your pastor say when you offer to pray before a meal:*
10// Can we not pray.......just this one time..........please?
9// Can we sing it instead?
8// Now? Here? Out loud?!!!
7// Hey, that's my job!
6// Already prayed this morning, so I'm good.
5// To what god would we be praying today?
4// I'm sure someone is already praying for a meal somewhere.
3// Let me ask if anyone here in this restaurant would like to join us for prayer.
2// God already knows what you're going to say, so what's the point?
1// Sorry, I gave up prayer for Lent.
Have any to add?
