One night, a daughter brought her boyfriend home to meet her parents. Upon first sight, the parents were astounded and appalled by his appearance – leather jacket, motorcycle boots, tattoos, and a pierced nose (and tongue they found out later at dinner).
At a discreet time, the parents pulled their daughter aside and diplomatically told Candi, “We are not sure about him, he doesn’t seem very nice.”
“Oh please, Mom,” replied the blonde daughter, “if he wasn’t nice, why would he be doing 500 hours of community service?”
Interviewer: “So, tell me about yourself.”
Me: “I’d rather not. I kinda want this job.”
Thought for the day
“It was the first year of the reign of Darius the Mede, the son of Ahasuerus, who became king of the Babylonians. During the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, learned from reading the word of the LORD, as revealed to Jeremiah the prophet, that Jerusalem must lie desolate for seventy years” Daniel 9:1-2 NLT
You will never pray effectively until you study Scripture and listen to God. The more you know the Bible, the more effective your prayers will be.
