The Post About Praying with Ulterior Motives
A conversation transcript between my friend Caryann and me as we discussed her 4-year-old nephew.
Caryann: Please pray for my nephew Matthew. The doctor found a mass in his abdomen that concerned him enough to ask for an ultrasound.
Me: I will pray it is something he swallowed without anyone knowing. And therefore, it will make a fabulous story. Or better yet, I’ll pray it's missing when they take the ultrasound. Not everything in life has to be about comedy.
Caryann: Actually, that would be kind of cool if it were a hobbit.
