Larry was very concerned for his hearing, so he decided to go to the revival meeting to see if the preacher there could help.
When he arrived, Larry sat down and waited until the preacher asked the congregation if anyone needed his assistance through prayer.
Larry raised his hand, and the preacher motioned for him to come over to receive divine assistance.
With one hand on Larry’s shoulder, and the other arm outreached, the preacher bellowed, “Tell me, son, what do you want me to pray so that you may receive help through the Lord?”
“Preacher, I need you to pray for my hearing,” replied Larry.
The preacher put one finger in each of Larry’s ears and prayed, totally committed to ensuring Larry doesn’t have any further problems with his hearing. When he finished the prayer, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked Larry, “How is your hearing now, my child?”
“I don’t know, Reverend,” replied Larry. “My hearing is not until next Wednesday.”
