"Please God," the little man prayed, "you know me. I am always praying to you and yet I have had nothing but bad luck, misery, sickness and despair all my life. And look at the butcher next door. He's never prayed in his life, and yet he has nothing but prosperity, health and joy. How come a believer like me is always in trouble and he is doing well?"
Suddenly a big booming voice sounded in his ear, "Because the butcher is not always bugging me, that's why!"
