“We asked Him to spare us.” (And He listened to our calls for help.)

“Guess the Lord was just on our side.” (And not with that other family.)

“The Holy Spirit answered our prayers.” (That’s the way of the Lord.)

“Thank God for curing our child of cancer.” (We asked him for a miracle.)

“He kept our house standing during the quake.” (God made it stronger than the others.)

“We didn’t lose our fortune during the recession.” (Because we invested in the Lord.)

“Give yourself over to Him.” (And He will let you enter paradise.)

“You’ll burn in Hell if you deny Him. (That’s what happens if you don’t praise Him.)

Amen . . .
