     An Ancient Prayer

Oh Lord Jesus I implore Thee
to bless all mankind and
Keep us from all Evil and
take us to dwell with thee
eternally. This prayer was
sent to me and must be
sent all over the world. Copy
it and see what will happ-
en. it was said in Jesus time
that all who copyed it would
be delivered from all calami
ty and those who pass it by
would meet with misfortune.
Those who copy it nine days
in succession and send to
nine friends will on the ninth
day receive some great Joy.
Please do not break the chain. No
name is signed only date
Dont fail to copy nine times.
