Two Irishmen, Pat and Mike, had narrowly escaped death on a sinking ship. They were floundering around in icy ocean waters on a couple of planks. Pat had a problem with often resorting to some of the grossest profanity and he thought that he ought to repent of it and then the Lord would come to his rescue. Mike thought his theology was sound. Pat began to pray, but just before arriving at the main thesis of his repentant prayer, Mike spotted a ship coming toward them. As delighted as Columbus when he first spotted the North American shore, Mike hollered, “Hold it, Pat. Don’t commit yourself, here’s a ship.” Pat immediately stopped praying! Isn’t that the way that many of us are? The only time we pray is when we are “in a jam.” As soon as things improve we forget God. (From John Haggai, Run To Win)
