6 O’Clock BS: Praying on the Street


Last Thursday night I was approached on the street by four puppy-eager teens. I was getting off of my motorcycle and heading to the 19 Club, a gay bar one block off of Nicollet Avenue and a few blocks from downtown Minneapolis. The four kids were all clean-cut and smiling kindly. One of the girls stepped forward and asked me if they knew of anybody or anything that they could pray for, and if I’d like to pray with them. I asked them to pray for the wall of church-state separation, because it has been weak as of late and it needs all the strength they could lend to it. They looked bemusified as I walked away.

    That’s brilliant! I”ll have to remember that one for the next time one of the clinic protesters asks me if they can pray for something for me.

    Thanks!

    Genies traditionally have a restriction on wishing for more wishes. God, as far as I know, has no such restriction. You should’ve had them pray you up a million wishes, and then gone nuts.
