A Lottery Prayer - Poem by Pete Crowther
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.
