A young man from Ireland called Seamus finds himself in dire trouble.
His farm has gone bust and he’s in serious financial trouble. He’s so desperate that he decides to ask God for help. He goes into the Church and begins to pray “God, please help me, I’ve lost my Farm and if I don’t get some money, I’m going to lose my house as well, please let me win the lotto”.
Lotto night comes and somebody else wins it.
Seamus goes back to the Church. “God, please let me win the lotto, I’ve lost my Farm, my house and I’m going to lose my tractor as well”.
Lotto night comes and Seamus still has no luck!!
Back to the Church again. “My God, why have you forsaken me?? I’ve lost my Farm, my house, my tractor and my wife and 17 children are starving. I don’t often ask you for help and I have always been a good servant to you. Why won’t you just let me win the lotto this one time so I can get my life back in order?”
Suddenly there is a blinding flash of light as the heavens open and Seamus is confronted by the voice of GOD himself: “Seamus, meet me half way on this one, buy a ticket”.
