Don’t deride me when I say I’ll pray for you. Prayer is all I have to give you, because my assets have all been spent, mostly on charities. Of course, my sons’ educations were once my charities.
But prayer, to God, from an almost penniless adherent, is precious, and He hears them. Better yet, is that prayer, than a gift of stocks. Better yet, than the gold in Zanzibar, or some yet undiscovered cache. No one’s come back yet to complain about heaven.
Don’t take that away from me, my belief. It has paid off here and now.
