In a Birmingham church one fine Sunday morning a preacher said,"Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the altar."
With that, Leroy got in line, and when it was his turn,the Preacher asked, "Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?"
Leroy replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for helpwith my hearing."
The preacher put one of his fingers in Leroy's ear, then he took his other hand and placed it on top of Leroy's head; he prayed and prayed and eventually the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm.
After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands,stood back and asked, "Leroy, how is your hearing now?
"Leroy answered, "I don't know. It ain't 'til Thursday."
