                  An Ancient Prayer

Oh! Lord Jesus. I pray Thee, to bless us and
keep us and and bring us to dwell with Thee

                        - Amen -
This prayer was sent to me and is being sent
around the world. Copy it and see what-
happens. It is said that in Jesus' day all who
wrote this prayer would be delivered from
all evil, but who passed it by would meet
with great Misfortune. Copy it and send it
to nine friends within nine days and on the
tenth day you will meet with some great joy.
I signed no name, only date. Received by
me Feb 19th. Sent by me Feb 20th.
