Here’s your daily reminder that prayer can sometimes make things worse.
This time, a Utah family about to head to the airport for a Hawaiian vacation left the car running in their driveway while they all went back inside to say a prayer.
When they came back out, the car was gone.
“(We) turned the car on to start it for a couple minutes, and then we sat down as a family and had a little prayer, left to go get in the car, and the car was gone,” [mother] Ashly Johnson said.
The family was inside the house for just a few minutes, but that’s all the time it took for someone to get in the white 2004 Toyota Sequoia and drive away.
[Salt Lake police detective Robert Ungricht] also added that a lot of insurance companies will not cover theft of a motor vehicle if it finds that the owner left the vehicle warming up or left the keys in the vehicle and created a crime of opportunity.
Moral of the story: Pray in the car like Jesus told you to. He can’t save you from yourselves.
