Chuckle for today!
A fellow is walking in a Big Game Park and he realizes he is being stalked by a lion. He starts running as fast as he can, gets very tired, and realizes he cannot outrun a lion; so, he says this prayer. “Lord, please turn this lion into a Christian”. He turns to see if the lion is still after him and he sees that the lion is on its knees. The man thinks his prayer must have worked, and he decides to go over to the lion. As he nears the lion, he sees that it is praying, and he is delighted. Then he hears the lion’s prayer. “Thank you, Lord, for the food I am about to receive.”
