The Lord's Prayer

If you read My Story (an earlier post), you'd know why this is not only funny, but very special to me.

The story is told that the church got a new Youth Pastor.

As the Senior Pastor was giving the announcements, he said, "Aaron, our new Youth Pastor, please come up to the podium and lead us in the Lord's Prayer when I get through with the announcements."

A deacon in the back nudged the Assosciate Pastor, Allen, and said, "I'll bet you twenty dollars that he doesn't know it."

Allen said, "Shhh! The pastor is talking... you'll get me in trouble."

The deacon wouldn't let up, "Twenty dollars."

"Okay, just be quiet," said Allen.

After the announcements, Aaron came to the microphone, bowed his head and said, "Let's pray."

"Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake, .
I pray the Lord my soul to take, Amen."

The deacon came to Allen after the service shaking his head. "Here's the twenty dollars."

Allen, looking puzzled said, "What's this for?"

"I didn't think he knew it!" exclaimed the deacon.
