Your Prayers are Secret

D and I were in a church recently and saw a box in the lobby with a sign that said 'Prayer Requests.' Not too strange. Except that the box had a padlock on it. And it was locked.

I don't get it. What would compel the leader of a community of faith to put out a box, yet have to put a lock on it? Is there only one person in the community that can get the prayers? Is he or she the only one that prays for those requests? Does the congregation even submit their requests to the box?

It's laughable because it's so absurd.
