A Lottery Prayer

Rating: 4.2

St. Abune Teklehaimanot, I pray
You help me win the Lottery today.
I beseech, entreat and beg
You who stood upon one leg
That you may grant my fervent plea
And the winner of the jackpot will be me!

Note: St. Abune Teklehaimanot (by some regarded as the patron saint of gamblers) is famed for his extreme piety which included standing upright at prayer on one leg for seven years without a break.

Very good. I'm going to copy this out and recite it every evening. Just one thing though - if everyone says it, does that mean we all win the lottery at once? Lovely poem, about a Saint I would no nothing about if it weren't for you. Hugs Anna xxx
