A Funny Prayer Story That Has to Be Shared

A Funny Prayer Story That Has to Be Shared

Do you have a funny prayer story?

We all have one, right? Or perhaps more than one. Here are twelve funny prayer stories to make your day.

Harambe Jr. and TheMormonLikes hit Twitter up with the question, “What’s your funniest prayer story?”

I can honestly say I’ve never been witness to this first one below.

Children say the most interesting things, and prayers are no different!

This is what happens when we use vain repetitions. 😂

I really hope this has never happened in any other Sacrament Meeting.

I wonder if this was a joke or it just happened?

Another vain repetition prayer rears its ugly head. We have a few of those in our culture.

For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.

Yeah, personally not seeing this as a very effective way to do missionary work.

Has anyone else put their companion to sleep while praying on the mission? I looked over at my companion one time during prayer and he was drooling. Well, a few times actually.

Being a Bishop has to be very uncomfortable at times. This would have been one of those times.

You have to admire this man’s efficiency. He must have taken a time management course.

Another funny prayer story. Kids, the are seriously the best. Definitely a manifestation of God’s love for each one of us.

Now this is an example of someone who talks to God just as if they were talking to someone else in the room. It takes a gift to be able to do that.

It’s not what was said but what happened during a prayer. We were at an Elders Quarum party. All was quiet and I farted not just a little bit long and loud. Then I started to laugh which caused more farts. It goes without saying I’ve been teased about it.

We had the missionaries over for supper, my daughter wanted to give the prayer. She was around 5 years old, in her prayer she said “Please Heavenly Father do not let mom’s food poison the missionaries“. Needless to say the missionaries had a worried expression, but we all survived.

One time I was praying over dinner with the family. I was about to say thank you for a few of my kids who had helped with the meal, but instead I said the wrong kid's name and then backtracked. "Thank you for Orion, no, not Orion." Then I busted up laughing and struggled to quickly finish the prayer. We laugh about it still, but really I am very thankful for Orion.

Haha, that's so funny. I hope Orion still laughs about it. ;)

When my kids were in primary I would make chocolate chip cookies after church as a reward for behaving. My oldest son who has autism could say very few understandable words but they asked him to give the prayer in primary in an effort to include him. One of the most clear phrases in his prayer were, "please bless that we earn chocolate chip cookies". The primary president after church told me that they would all like to earn chocolate chip cookies for doing a good job at church.

In primary, when a young boy said the prayer and asked that "no harm would be followin' us." Do you think his family prays that "no harm will befall us," lol!

A different time, same boy said: "oh yeah, and thank you that Spiderwick Chronicles was rated PG, because if it was rated R my mom would be like, "No way!!"
