The Bee Stings the ‘Unspoken Prayer Request’

When you don’t trust your brothers and sisters, or you just want to tantalize folk with a bit of gossip, keep it ‘unspoken’

Sources confirmed Wednesday morning that the unspoken prayer request from church secretary Judy Webb was “probably a super juicy, tantalizing nugget of gossip.” As Webb offered up the unspoken prayer request during the Tuesday night prayer meeting, other parishioners reportedly raised their eyebrows and subtly nudged one another, trying to contain their curiosity.

“I bet it’s an affair,” one of Webb’s closest friends whispered to another of Webb’s closest friends. “It’s always an affair when it’s unspoken.” The other friend then was seen nodding knowingly, agreeing that the tender and personal request for intercession was likely some spicy marital scandal. As speculation ran wild regarding the nature of Webb’s unspoken prayer request, insiders confirmed that not a single person within the prayer group had followed through on the commitment to pray for Webb throughout the week, as of publishing time.

    I’ve always hated ‘unspoken’ prayer requests. If you can’t say what it is, because it’s too personal / private a matter, don’t bother the congregation about it; just pray to God yourself over it.
