THE POWER OF PRAYER

THE POWER OF PRAYER

*In a small town in India, a person decided to open up a Bar, which wasright opposite to a Temple. The Temple & its congregation started a campaignto block the Bar from opening with petitions and prayed daily against hisbusiness.Work progressed.... However, when it was almost complete and was about to opena few days later, a strong lightning struck the Bar and it was burnt to theground.The temple folks were rather smug in their outlook after that, till the Barowner sued the Temple authorities on the grounds that the Temple through itscongregation & prayers was ultimately responsible for the ill fate of hisdream project, either through direct or indirect actions or means.In its reply to the court, the temple vehemently denied all responsibilityor any connection that their prayers were reasons to the bar's burning down.As the case made its way into court, the judge looked over the paperwork atthe hearing and commented: " I don't know how I'm going to decide this case,but it appears from the paperwork, we have a bar ownerwho believes in the power of prayer and we have an entire temple and itsdevotees that doesn't."*__________*Do you know why a Car's WINDSHIELD is so large & the Rearview Mirror is sosmall?Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE.
