The Bear’s Prayer


The bear was about to eat him.

And when he saw that this is so

Michael raised his arms and prayed to God,

“Lord, I do not want to die.

Make this bear have compassion.

Make him understand religion.”


All at once there was a flash of light,

and thunder echoed all around the mountains,

and the bear’s face started to glow.

Without warning, the bear knelt down,

put its paws together, looked up and prayed,

“Lord, bless  this food which

 I am about to receive from thy bounty.

I’m sure he tastes good. Amen”
