The Silent Prayer
Max: God, I want to do great things.
God: You do?
Max: You bet! I want to teach millions! I want to fill the Rose Bowl! I want all of the world to know your saving power! I dream of the day....
God: That's great. Max. In fact, I can use you today after church.
Max: Super! How about some radio and TV work or ... or ... or an engagement to speak to Congress?
God: Well, that's not exactly what I had in mind. See that fellow sitting next to you?
God: He needs a ride home.
Max (quietly): What?
God: He needs a ride home. And while you're at it, one of the older ladies sitting near you is worried about getting a refrigerator moved. Why don't you drop by this afternoon and....
Max (pleading): But, God, what about the world?
God (smiling): Think about it.
