We have all learned to live with “voice mail” as a necessary part of modern life. But have you wondered, what if God decided to install voice mail?” Imagine praying and hearing this: Thank you for calling My Father’s House. Please select one of the following options:
Press 1 for Requests
Press 2 for Thanksgiving
Press 3 for Complaints
Press 4 for All Other Inquiries
What if God used the familiar excuse, “I’m sorry all of our angels are busy helping other sinners right now. However, your prayer is important to us and will be answered in the order it was received, so please stay on the line”
Can you imagine getting these kinds of responses as you call God in Prayer: If you would like to speak to:
Gabriel, Press 1
For Michael, Press 2
For a directory of other Angels, Press 3
If you would like to hear King David sing a Psalm while you are holding please press 4.
To find out if a loved one has been assigned to Heaven, Press 5, enter his or her Social Security number, then press the pound key.
(If you get a negative response, try area code 666.)
For reservations at “My Father’s House” please enter J-O-H-N followed by 3-1-6.
For answers to nagging questions about dinosaurs, the age of the earth and where Noah’s Ark is, please wait until you arrive here.
Our computers show that you have already prayed once today. Please hang up and try again tomorrow.
This office is closed for the weekend to observe a religious holiday. Please pray again Monday after 9:30 AM. If you need emergency assistance when this office is closed, contact your local pastor.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Phi 4:6-7 ESV)
