Keep Praying!

Around this time of year, we Jews pray fervently that the good Lord above provides the thirsty land of Israel with enough rain to make it through the long summer months.

This thought was very much on my mind as I walked into school this morning only to be told that a local water main had burst and as a result, we were to get in touch with the childrens' parents and obtain permission to send them home, as school had to close for the day. Of course, teachers were also asked to leave.

Keeping in mind that the New Year starts this evening, I couldn't think of a more opportune moment for something like this to happen, granted that I've got quite a bit to do in advance of the holiday.

So you see, G-d answers prayers!

Wow, I've heard of SNOW days, but never "Water" days!

I think I will pray for THAT!

Maybe I need you to send me some tips on how to pray... Our lights went out for a few minutes the other day; I said a brief prayer that they would stay off and we could go home. About that time they came back on.

What am I doing wrong? LOL

The Teacher said...

Its not how you pray, its when !

With your lights story, I would also have added some extra prayers around the time the lights came back on...and waited for them to go off again!!!

You aren't doing anything wrong. Try praying for something bigger, like a burst water pipe...
