MPR's Tom Weber spotted this at a church in Lake Elmo.
That is sick. Sorry MN, but i was taught to pray for courage, support, etc. not for one particular football team to blessed over another. Humorous.. a little bit, but I do believe in a higher being, but I do not believe he picks teams.
Sarcasm. Is always tough to convey thru text.
The sign is clearly humorous and not one church's request for divine intervention any more than than praying to win the powerball or for green lights on the way to work.
Lighen up and laugh at the clever ability of this church's employees.
Thanks, Bob, for posting this.
It reminds me of my days at Concordia Moorhead where they used to pray for the football team in chapel. Not much has changed, I guess...except that the Lutherans now ordain the gay clergy, too.
I think churches have to have a little marketing these days. Reel 'em in with Bret Favre, then get 'em praying about the hungry and homeless.
Here's the original:
who art in Lambeau
hallowed be thine arm
the bowl will come
it will be won
in New Orleans as it is in Lambeau
give us this Sunday
our weekly win
and give us many touchdown passes
but do not let others pass against us
lead us not on frustration
but deliver us to Bourbon Street
for thine is the M.V.P.
the best of the N.F.C.
and the glory of all the cheese heads
now and for ever
Again, remember it a joke...
