The other weekend, Mom had two scratch-off-at-the-register coupons for a department store that had a max discount of 40 percent. She mentioned this to my 86-year-old grandmother who then replied, “Maybe one will be 40 percent. I’ll pray about it while we’re in the store.”
When they got to the register, the first coupon was 25 percent — the second, 40.
So I have a MegaMillions ticket for tonight’s
$586 $636 million drawing, and Mom is supposed to task Nanny with a new prayer request.
We’re really gonna test this power of prayer thing.
