Prayer of negotiation

Don't Go Too Far

Two men were adrift in an open boat, and it looked bad for them. Finally one of them became frightened and began to pray.

"O Lord," he prayed, “I've broken most of thy commandments. I've been a hard drinker, but if my life is spared now I'll promise never again...”

"Wait a minute, Jack,” said his friend. “Don't go too far. I think I see a sail.”
