The Mouse in Prayer Meeting
Once we had a prayer meeting
in our home…it was a humble place.
When all our friends were gathered there,
a mouse gave a merry chase.
He scampered across the living room floor,
we wished that we could die.
We prayed that the floor would open up
and swallow him…it didn’t-
But at least he was shy.
