   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.
   This was sent to me and
is sent all over the world
Copy it and see what will
happen. It was said in
Jesus time that all who
wrote this would be delivered
form all calamity and
those who pass it by would
meet with some misfortune.
  Those who copy it and
send to nine friends
within nine days after
receiving will on the
ninth day meet with
some great joy.
    Don't break the chain.
       Sign no name
           Date only.
