Funny Prayer Requests & Church Humor - TRUE

Church Humor

If you go to church you know that the funniest things that can ever happen can happen at church.

The first story happened at a little country church my dad pastored in the Ozarks.

Pernys Problem

My mother the sweet little pastors wife went to pick up an elderly saint. Bless her heart she only went through the third grade. She had a very distressed look on her face so Mom asked her, " Perny what's the matter?" She said so upset," It's Ishmael their gonna have to remove his prostitute gland."

Yes, she sure did, when they arrived at church she announced in front of the congregation, " Pray for Ishmael their gonna do surgery and remove his prostitute."

The church roared in laughter, my dad, the pastor was so dumbstruck. "Try leading a service after that!" "The poor lady still didn't know what she said so funny."

______________________________________________________________

Lilies Cuz

This happened at the same lil country church during prayer requests.

Lily, a large Indian lady with a strong hick accent announced, " Pastor, please pray for Mary she has a sperm in her heel."

"Oh my goodness we needed parental control in some of these services, so funny!"

_____________________________________________________________

Watch it! Praise Who?

My cousin was in Bible college and asked to minister. He was a fiery Pentecostal, had everyone on their feet excited about his powerful sermon. He then ruined everything when he announced, " Lets all praise the devil!" Oops! he meant the Lord, but too late now everyone was rolling laughing. Was his face red?

____________________________________________________________

Shoo Weeeeee

A pastor we know was preaching a wonderful sermon about going back to where we used to be when we worshipped God and had powerful spirit-filled services. He named several people and asked them things like, " How long has it been since you moved out and took a step for God?""How long has it been since you danced before the Lord?"

Then he look at another fellow said his name and said, " How long has it been since you cut a good one?" Hmmmmmmm!!!!! Maybe a few minutes ago?

It was hard to take the sermon serious after that one.

_____________________________________________________________

Breaking Wind

One preacher was using an illustration in his sermon about how ducks or geese when they fly in formation how one duck flies a certain way to break the wind.

Challenging the saints to do their part in the service he says, " Church, lets all stand and break wind!"

Whoo!! That one went over real good, everyone roared in laughter.

______________________________________________________________

Tent Revival Bloopers

My little brother when he was around two years old during an outdoor tent meeting decided to play the streak.

During the service the tent flap lifted and all you could see is the bare front of a little boy who had just found somewhere to use the bathroom.

Whoo! Was we embarrassed? Not too mention he was the pastors kid.

______________________________________________________________

Are we seeing what we think we are seeing?

In the little white church on a Sunday morning we had a visiting minister. Being a Pentecostal preacher he was full of life. My dad, the pastor and his fellow deacons were enthusiastically backing him up.

Suddenly, the backers eyes caught a moving object going past the church window heading straight toward the parsonage. Are we seeing what we think we are seeing? Yes, they were! " It was the big yellow church bus rolling down the hill. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!! The men all took off out of the church to stop the giant converted school bus before it crashed into the parsonage.

The preacher thought he got them to run the isles, ( he did not see the bus). He ran after them, shouting, " Praise the Lord!" Much too funny!

"These are all true stories that were eye-witnessed mostly by me or my family. I hope you enjoyed them. I will be adding more soon.

What a riot guess preachers need to read their sermons out loud at home before speaking them in the church. Too funny. Thanks for the laugh.

these are too funny! I laughed so hard i cried...especially about the devil one!

It reminds me of the time i was in church and it was a huge easter sermon and they had a lady give her testimony. And she told the congregation "With Jesus you have nothing." Poor lady turned so red but kept on telling her testimony hoping no one noticed

I once sat through a service where the preacher was talking about casting the demons into the pigs. He made the comment that it's the only time 'deviled ham' was mentioned in the Bible. An older lady got up and chewed him out for being sacreligious right there in the middle of the sermon. Everyone dared not to laugh for fear she'd turn her wrath on them.

At the final concert after church music camp, I was standing on the back row of risers in front of a very large, very packed church. During the very long final prayer, a friend and I were goofing off, and he ended up shoving me so hard I fell off the back and into the baptismal behind me. Want to talk about an uproar!!!!

I'm not sure why so many people think church is boring. There's some interesting stuff that goes on in there!

These stories are wonderful! My dad was attending a funeral for an elderly woman one day. He was sitting next to my friend's mother, who is an extremely funny lady. During the funeral, her cell phone started going off with the tune Another One Bites The Dust! She hurriedly scrambled to shut it off, and was mortified. I still laugh about that one!

Greetings in the precious name of Christ.

I would like to request your prayer fro my sister-in-law, My brother wants a baby (1st child) but every time they are getting a failure some treatment is also going on but its giving no results they are trying since 1 year. Their reports are normal and they don't have any major problem.They stay in Australia and they are alone there as our whole family is in India, today my brother called my mother and was very disturbed about this, my sister-in-laws cry's all the time. They both are in much pain and I cant see their pain. I pray for them daily but I am not sure but also confident that if holy people like you will pray for him God will surely listen our prayers soon and bless them with a beautiful baby.

They are eagerly waiting for their 1st child and so are we.

Pl pray for them.

God bless you all for the work you are doing.

Thank you for your prayers

Thank you Lord for listening our prayers.

Nancy, I will pray that God will give them a baby. My husbands cousin's wife was told they would not have a baby, but the people of God joined in prayer together. One night I felt like praying nearly all night so burdened for them. Around 9-10 months later they had a baby and just had their second baby a few months ago. "God is ABLE!"

Great share singingmommy... Your cousin should have managed saying "Let us praise the devil... bcoz, the more he do evil, the more GOD come close to us and save us"... Always win with what we say wrongly, by a twist at the end ;-)

Thanks for your comment. However, doing evil is never a good idea. God's grace does turn evil to good, but evil doings always carries consequence and scars.None of us are perfect, but we need to strive to live like God desires for His children.

I am honored you all have added your prayer requests to the comment block. I realize this hub is numerous, but we realize there is power in prayer and NOTHING is too hard for God. So after the laughter we can get serious and realize there is allot of needs out there and we must unite together and hold one another up in prayer. God bless you all!
