Then Phyllis started praying, I could tell by the sound and tone and rhythm of her voice that I was in for a long one.  It didn’t bother me, when she does this, I just ask myself, “Why me Lord, what have I ever done to deserve someone so wonderful.”

Well, about five minutes into Phyllis’ prayer, I could hear the clicking on her line notifying her that someone was calling in.  Quickly, I wondered, “Will she take the other call in the middle of this long prayer?”

She did.

She stopped right in the middle of her prayer, and said, “Excuse me, I have take this call.”

While I waited, I thought about how she was going to come back in the middle of her prayer.  Would she start right in?  Would she forget she was praying?

About three minutes later, the line clicked back over and Phyllis came back.

There was a silence, and then Phyllis spoke.
