When God Sends Help


I’m borrowing this from Jerry Kieschnick, past President of the LCMS.

A woman hurrying out of a pharmacy to her car discovered her keys locked inside.  She found a coat hanger lying beside the car.  She said, “I don’t know how to use this thing.”

She asked God to send help.

Within five minutes a beat-up old motorcycle pulled up, driven by a bearded old biker wearing skull rag.  He asked if he could help.

The lady said, “Yes, my daughter is home sick.  I’ve locked my keys in the car.  Could you use this hanger to unlock the car?”

He said, “Sure.”  And in less than a minute he opened the door.  The woman hugged the man and through tears said, “Thank you, God, for sending such a nice man.”

The man heard her prayer and replied, “Lady, I’m not a nice man.  I just got out of prison yesterday.  I’ve been serving time for car theft.”

The woman hugged him again, praying, “Oh, thank you, God for sending a professional.”
