A thought for a Sunday - Dean visits church

Dean goes along to the Sunday service and listens to the hymns and the sermon. Towards the end the vicar asks anyone who needs special prayers to come forward to the altar.

Dean gets in line, and when it's his turn, the vicar asks: "Dean, please tell my why you need prayer and the Lord will provide for you".

Dean replies: "Reverend, I need you to pray for my hearing".

The vicar puts one finger in Dean's ear, and he places his other hand on top of Dean's head and prays and prays and prays. After a few minutes, he removes his hands, stands back and asks, "Dean, how is your hearing now?"

Dean says, "I don't know, Reverend, it's not 'til next Wednesday".
