    The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express
    praise for answered prayers. A lady stood and walked to the podium.

    She said, "I have a Praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a
    terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain
    was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."

    You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they
    imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.

    "Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every
    move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a
    delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together
    the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold
    it in place."

    Again, the men in the congregation were unnerved and squirmed
    uncomfortably as they imagined the horri ble surgery performed on Tom.

    "Now," she announced in a quavering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out
    of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should
    recover completely."

    All the men sighed with relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if
    anyone else had something to say.

    A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium.

    He said, "I'm Tom."

    The entire congregation held its breath.

    "I just want to tell my wife that the word is sternum." :faint:
