Answer Your Prayers

A man prayed fervently every morning at family worship for the poor in the community, but he was never known to give anything to the poor.  One morning at the conclusion of the family worship, after the usual prayer had been offered for the needy, his little son said:

“Daddy, I wish I had your corn crib.”

“Why, my son?” asked the father.

“Because then I would answer your prayers myself.”
