Last week during the service, pastor Stan Looked congregation and asked if anyone there would like to express praise for prayers, which had been answered.
One lady stood up and came to the front and said, “I have a reason to thank the Lord.”
“Three months ago, my husband, Steve, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed.”
“The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn’t know if they could do anything to help him.”
You could hear an giant gasp from all the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Steve experienced.
She then said, “Steve was unable to hold me or the children and every move caused him terrible pain.”
“We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation.”
“They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Steve’s scrotum and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.”
Again, the men in the Congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Steve.
She continued, “Now, Steve is out of the hospital and the doctors say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely.”
All the men sighed with relief.
Then pastor Stan rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had anything to say.
A man rose and walked slowly to the podium. He said, “I’m Steve and I would just like to tell my beautiful blonde wife, the word is ‘sternum.”
