A guy named Joe finds himself in dire trouble. His business has
gone bust and he's in serious financial trouble. He's so
desperate that he decides to ask God for help. He begins to

"God, please help me, I've lost my business and if I don't get
some money, I'm going to lose my house as well, please let me
win the lotto".

Lotto night comes and somebody else wins it.

Joe again prays...

"God, please let me win the lotto! I've lost my business, my
house and I'm going to lose my car as well".

Lotto night comes and Joe still has no luck.

Once again, he prays...

"My God, why have you forsaken me?? I've lost my business, my
house, and my car. My wife and children are starving. I don't
often ask you for help and I have always been a good servant to
you. PLEASE just let me win the lotto this one time so I can get
my life back in order ... "

Suddenly there is a blinding flash of light as the heavens open
and Joe is confronted by the voice of GOD himself:

"Joe, meet me half way on this one...Buy a ticket!"
