"God, why didn't you answer my paryers?"

Last edited Wed Oct 4, 2017, 07:26 PM - Edit history (2)

There was a flood in a city in which this devoted Christian lived. He stood on his roof as the water rose. He prayed, "God, please save me. Please don't let me drown."

Just as he finished his prayer, a man appeared in a row boat. "Get in", he shouted to the man on his roof. "No", said the man on the roof, "the Lord will save me". 15 minutes later, a helicopter appeared, and dropped a rope ladder to the man on the roof, "no need to bother. The Lord will save me", said the man on the roof. A half hour later, with the man on the roof now up to his neck in water, a man in a raft appeared and said, "Jump in, Jump in, or you will surely drown". The man on the roof still remained faithful. "The Lord will not let me down, He will answer my prayers". Eventually, the man on the roof did drown, and met the Lord in heaven. The man said to his Lord, "Why did you let me drown. Why didn't you answer my prayers?" and the Lord replied, "who do you think sent the boat, the helicopter and the raft?"

We can pray all we want after another mass killing tragedy, but stricter gun laws are the Lord's version of the boat, the helicopter and the raft.
