One night at bedtime, a father was passing by his son’s room and overheard his son praying: “God bless Mommy, Daddy, and Grandma. Ta ta, Grandpa.”
The father was somewhat confused about his son‘s prayers, but at least his son was praying. The next morning, however, they found the grandfather prostrate on the floor, dead of an apparent heart attack. The father was naturally a bit unnerved at the timing but reassured himself that it was just a coincidence.
That night at bedtime, the father again overheard his son praying: “God bless Mommy and Daddy. Ta ta, Grandma.”
The father was definitely worried, but reassured himself that his son’s prayers could not be connected to the grandfather’s death. He decided to go to bed and try not to worry about it. But, unfortunately, the next morning the grandmother was lying on the floor, also dead of a heart attack.
By now the father was really scared. He decided to wait outside his son’s door that night and listen to his prayers. Once again, the boy prayed: “God bless Mommy. Ta ta, Daddy.”
By now the father was nearly out of his mind with anxiety. He paced half of the night, then finally decided to head straight for the hospital and the emergency room. By the time the ER doctor saw him it was early morning. The doctor reassured the father that his health was fine and he had nothing to worry about.
When he finally arrived home in the late morning, his wife was standing on the porch, waiting.
She said, “Thank God you’re here. You won‘t believe what happened! We found the milkman dead on our porch this morning!”
