A Methodist preacher said, "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the alter." With that, Tyrone got in line and when it was his turn, the Preacher asked, "Tyrone, what do you want me to pray about for you?" Tyrone replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing." The preacher put one finger of one hand in Tyrone's ear, placed his other hand
on top of Tyrone's head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed
a "blue streak" for Tyrone, and the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm. After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked, "Tyrone, how is your hearing now?" Tyrone answered, "I don't know. It ain't 'til next week."
