Bobby tried over and over to pray but couldn’t seem to do it. Finally, he looked up to his dad and said; “I think I’m getting a busy signal.
Bobby’s Sunday School teacher was struggling to open a combination lock on the supply cabinet. She had been told the combination, but couldn’t quite remember it.
Finally she asked for help. Is there anyone in this class who can help?
Bobby held up his hand and volunteered. After the first two numbers he paused and stared blankly for a moment. Finally he looked serenely heavenward and his lips moved silently.
Then he looked back at the lock, and quickly turned to the final number, and opened the lock.
The substitute teacher was amazed. “I’m in awe at your faith, Bobby,” she said.
“It’s really nothing,” he answered. “The number is on a piece of tape on the ceiling.”
Bobby’s good friend was Jewish. His father was a Rabbi. The father thought his son just didn't have the appreciation for the Jewish religion that an adult should have so he decided to send him on a trip to the holy lands to get a first hand look at Jewish culture. The boy came back from the trip and the father asked him how it went.
"Oh it was really great dad, thanks! But, I must tell you that I'm a Christian now."
His father was none too pleased and felt he had to do something but didn't know what to do so he went to a fellow Rabbi and told him the situation.
The Rabbi exclaimed, "don't look at me! I sent my son to Jerusalem and he came back a Christian also. Their combined opinion was that it was a conspiracy and decided to go to the Head Rabbi.
The Head Rabbi exclaimed, "Don't look at me! I too sent my son to Jerusalem and he came back a Christian. This is something we MUST pray over."
All three kneeled and prayed and God answered: "Don't look at me...."
Bobby found out he is lousy at meditation. He always falls asleep.
Bobby inquired, "Pastor, I notice every Sunday morning when you first come out to preach, you sit up on the platform and bow your head. What are you doing?"
The pastor explained, "I'm asking the Lord for help to give a great sermon."
Bobby quickly responded "Why doesn't He?"
Bobby decided to have a conversation with God.
He asked; “God, how much is a million years to you?
God answered; “It's a second.”
Bobby asked again; “How much is a million dollars to you?
God said; “It's a penny.”
So Bobby asked, "God can I have a penny?"
And God replied, "In just a second."
Bobby, dressed in Easter Sunday best, was running as fast as he could, trying not to be late for Sunday school class.
As he ran he prayed, "Dear Lord, please don't let me be late! Dear Lord, please don't let me be late!" As he was running and praying, he tripped on a curb and fell, getting his clothes dirty and tearing his pants.
He got up, brushed himself off, and started running again.
As he ran he once again began to pray, "Dear Lord, please don't let me be late... But please don't shove me either!"
Bobby was asked if he prayed when he attended church, and he answered that he always did.
“I always repeat a silent prayer just before the sermon. It is a little prayer my mother taught me--'Now I lay me down to sleep.'"
As the storm raged, the captain realized his ship was sinking fast. He called out, "Anyone here know how to pray?" Bobby stepped forward. "Aye, Captain, I know how to pray."
"Good," said the captain, "you pray while the rest of us put on our life jackets - we're one short."
Bobby heard they have Dial-a-Prayer for atheists now.
You call up and it rings and rings but nobody answers.
