The power of prayer

It’s Easter Weekend so how about a blog about prayer and a little humor to start your weekend the right way.

Three men were hiking through a forest… when they came upon a large raging, violent river. 

Needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed:

‘God, please give me the strength to cross the river’.


God gave him big arms and strong legs…and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.

After witnessing that, the second man prayed:

‘God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river’ 


God gave him a kayak and strong arms and strong legs… and he was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once. 

Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed:

‘God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross the river’ 



She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards upstream… and walked across the bridge.
