"The Sunday Gamble" by D. M. Larson
Come on... Please. I'm begging you God. Give this to me and I will give you my all... I will dedicate myself to you. Scout's honor!
(Tries to figure out number of fingers for Scout salute)
I need this. I know I always pray that but this time I really do. I know it seems like I pray to you only when I really want something ... Or really worried about something. But that's what you're there for right? Like an exam in school or the flu. I know should talk to you when things are good. I know it's good to be thankful for good things too. I just forget. Forgive me? Forgive and forget? You forgive I forget. Just a little prayer humor. Sorry about that.
So how about it God? I really need this. I have never wanted anything so much in my life.
Please help my team to win on Sunday. I have a lot riding on this one. And if you give me this, I promise to be at church every Sunday... except this one. But every single Sunday after this. How is that for a deal?
