“Lord, I want to thank you for my smoking’ hot wife…”
No, I didn’t say it! (My wife warned me if I prayed that publicly it might be my last prayer.)
Those are the words of the Rev. Joe Nelms, pastor of First Baptist Church of Lebanon, Tenn., praying at NASCAR’s Federated 300 Nationwide Series Race in Nashville recently. Pastor Nelms became an instant star on the internet with comments about his prayer ranging from “the greatest prayer ever” to “blasphemous.”
It is neither.
