The Ultimate VIP

The Pope has just finished a tour of the Napa Valley and is taking a limousine to San Francisco. Having never driven a limo, he asks the chauffeur if he can drive for a while. Since the chauffeur really doesn’t have much of a choice, he climbs in the back of the limo and the Pope takes the wheel.

The Pope proceeds down Silverado, and starts accelerating to see what the limo can do. He gets to about 90 MPH, and suddenly he sees the red and blue lights of the highway patrol in his mirror. He pulls over and the trooper comes to his window.

The trooper, seeing who it is, says, ‘Just a moment please, I need to call in.’ The trooper calls in and asks for the chief. He tells the chief that he’s got a REALLY important person pulled over, and asks how he should handle it.

‘It’s not Ted Kennedy again is it?’ asks the chief.

‘No Sir!’ replies the trooper, ‘This guy’s more important.’

‘Is it the Governor?’ asks the chief.

‘No! Even more important!’ replies the trooper.

‘Is it the PRESIDENT??? asks the chief.

‘No! Even more important!’ replies the trooper.

‘Well WHO THE HECK is it?’ screams the chief.

‘I don’t know Sir.’ replies the trooper, ‘but he’s got the Pope as his chauffeur.’

Let us Pray…for Everyone

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 1:3 (NIV)

Heavenly Father God Almighty, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and Holy Spirit we seek your face and ask that you bend down and listen to our words of prayer. There are so many people in this world that are suffering from overwhelming tragedies. So many of the people in this world are grieving at the loss of their loved ones that have passed into your kingdom and even though we know this it is still hard. Please give us the strength and comfort that we need as we struggle with difficult times of mourning and those that have faced such great tragedies.

Bless the orphans and the widows. Bless all the children and all the mothers and fathers. Heal and bless the sick and the injured. Bless all the people of the world. Fill all Christians with the words to speak so others may know of your goodness and love. Fill the world leaders’ hearts with goodness and peace.

All this we pray in the name of your precious son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

Amen

23 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus. 1 Corinthians 16: 23-24 (NLT)

I love the performing arts and I am happy to lift those artists up. However I forget that there are other forms of art and this would be one of them…enjoy.
