Prayer skit adapted from something I heard on Christian radio


Jennifer says --- Ryan, I am going to spend some time in prayer. Please don’t disturb me. (goes across the room and kneels in prayer)


“Oh Lord, I am your servant. I want to do your will no matter what it is.”


(Ryan pokes his head in the room) Excuse me, the Kelly called and wants to know if you will chaperone at the Ithchus music festival this year?

Jennifer --- you know I don’t like living outdoors, That is just not my kind of thing. Tell her no.


Jennifer --- (back to praying) Dear Jesus, You are wonderful and your mercy endures forever. I love you with all of my heart and desire to serve you no matter what it is.


(Ryan pokes his head in the room) Excuse me again, Pastor Jerry called and wants to know if you will help with the Food Pantry ministry?

Jennifer --- Tell him no. I don’t like being around that kind of people.


Jennifer --- (back to praying) Heavenly Father, I thank you for the salvation you have given me. I am so appreciative for it --- I want to do some great thing to pay you back. What is it you would have me do? Whatever it is I will do it!


(Ryan pokes his head in the room) Excuse me,

Something else you would turn down.


Jennifer back to prayer. Lord I don’t understand why you don’t reveal to me what it is you want me to do.
