PRAYERS: When more rattlesnakes were needed in Casey CO, KY
Mighty Prayer of Clayton Miller reminds Knifleyan of another unusual entreaty presented the Lord, as told by author Paul W. Patton
By Frank W. Dickerson
California, USA; but always from Knifley, KY
Another noteworthy prayer, excerpted with permission from the book by Bro. Paul W. Patton, "A History of The Churches In Casey County Kentucky 1798~1985."
"But, in their prayers, as in all other aspects of their expression of religion, there would be humor. The story is told of the preacher being called to come to the home of a very wicked man to pray for his son who had been bitten by a rattlesnake. The preacher knelt by the bed of the boy and prayed,This book is no longer in print, but copies may be found in local libraries."Oh Lord, in Your divine wisdom You have sent this rattlesnake to bite this boy to bring him to his senses and repent. Lord, I pray Thee to send some more rattlesnakes this way. Send one to bite his brother Sam that he may likewise repent of his wickedness and be saved from hell. And, Lord, we beg Thee most earnestly to send a great big rattlesnake to bite their father because he has led these fine young men into a life of wickedness, that he might also repent before it is too late. Amen."
