Thank God for answered Prayers

A little humor from my friend Fr. Robert Morrison. I don't think he will mind me passing this on.

Thank God for answered Prayers.

The church minister asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers.

A lady stood and walked to the lectern. She said, “I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Jim, had a terrible motor cycle accident and his scrotum was
completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him.”

You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Jim experienced.

She continued, “Jim was unable to hold me or the children, and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation. They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim's
scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.”

Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim.

She went on, “Now, Jim is out of the hospital and the doctors say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely.”

All the men sighed with relief.

The minister rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had anything to say.

A man rose and walked to the lectern. He said, “I'm Jim and I want to tell my wife, the word is ‘sternum’.”
