I’m reminded of the story of two men who were walking through a field one day and spotted an enraged bull. Instantly, the darted toward the nearest fence. The storming bull followed in hot pursuit, and it was soon apparent that they wouldn’t make it. Terrified, one of the men shouted to the other, “Put up a prayer, John! We’re in for it!” John answered back, “I can’t. I never made a public prayer in my life.” The first man responded, saying, “But you must! The bull is catching up to us!” So John replied, “All right...I’ll say the only prayer that I know...the one my father used to repeat at the table.” With that he began to pray, “O Lord, for what we are to receive, make us truly thankful.”
