Selfish Prayer

Is it wrong to pray for some decent weather on Friday?

We have a big day planned with family, food, games & a Southern Illinois Miners‘ baseball game… but they just keep calling for rain & t’storms!

Maybe the Catholics have a saint specifically designated for weather related issues. Like Stephen Colbert says, the Saints are like God’s customer service reps. That way you don’t have to bother the Big Guy with the small stuff, like finding your keys or not raining on your festivities! Surely there is one – there are over 10,000!

I just feel like a selfish heel praying for something as silly as that while there are people dying in wars & starving to death all over the world.

Maybe I’m just worrying about it too much.
