"and please let her refrain from kicking the car dealer in the balls..."

This week when I was having car troubles, I needed to call a client to say I couldn't keep an appointment. After I explained my woes, she said, "We should pray about that."

I laughed, "Yeah..."

And then she busted out in prayer. REAL PRAYER, starting with Dear Lord and all. And I was sitting there on the phone, sorta stunned. Do I close my eyes? Do I fold my hands? Is it okay to pray to hurry up and get done praying? And what do I say after that? Besides the obvious "Amen"?

Turns out I said the amen, and then, "Oh, I put your invoice in the mail."

Smart! Thanks for the blessing! That'll be $250.00!
