Good idea

Last night during our nightly prayers it was Mike's turn. In his prayer, Mike asked for us to "rest...in peace". RIP. Really? He then added "uhh...but not that rest in peace." haha thanks for clarifying.

Nice idea, Mike. But "rest in peace" sounds a little creepy to me. I think you should just stick with the standard "have a good night sleep."

That is just too funny! You'd have to be pretty dang tired to want to really R.I.P. And I like how Mike clarified himself to the powers that be, just so there was no misunderstanding on God's part.

he he he! At least he was breaking habit and not using "vain repetitions." Sam's cousin Ben was praying one night and asked that his wife, Kim, who is pregnant, wouldn't have any post-mortem difficulties--but what he meant was post-partum. Post-mortem means "following the event of death." They got a good laugh out of that one!

We love you Mike!

It's a good thing I wasn't there because I would have burst out laughing.

Didn't Greg pray for Heidi's athleticism? I think Mike's request is just as funny. I once prayed for Frodo (Lord of the Rings) but it wasn't out loud. :)
