A blonde woman was going through a very difficult time in her life. She had lost her job and was rapidly running out of money. With no hope left, she decided to pray:

“God, please let me win the lottery. I’ve lost everything.” But the lottery came and went and she didn’t win.

She prayed once again, “God, I know the chance of winning the lottery is low, but I need it desperately. Please let me win.” But once again the lottery came and went and she didn’t win.

By this time she was starting to get frustrated with God, “Listen God, I really need to win the lottery. You could at least do that much for me.”

Suddenly a beam of light streaks down from the sky and God appears before her.

“God, why can’t you just let me win?” she asks him.

God shakes his head and said, “Look, I’ve been doing everything I can. Could you at least meet me half way and buy a ticket?”
