Jimmy goes to the church and listens to the preacher. After a while, the preacher asks anyone with needs to be prayed over to come forward. Jimmy goes up and the preacher asks, “Jimmy, what do you want me to pray about for you?”
“Preacher,” says Jimmy, “I need you to pray for my hearing.”
The preacher puts one finger in Jimmy’s ear and he places the other hand on top of Jimmy’s head and prays and prays and prays. After a few minutes, the preacher removes his hands and stands back.
“Jimmy, how is your hearing now?”
“I don’t know, Reverend,” says Jimmy. “My hearing’s not until next Wednesday.”
