Don’t use a wrench to do a drill’s job

First off: create this hilarious mental image – trying to drill a hole with a wrench. Ok, now that you’re loling… PRAYER. Prayer is like a WRENCH.

Truthfully, we can’t make God do stuff if we get the formula right (the quote is a formula, but is quoted for its humour rather than its truthfulness), and he is…
