I just wrote about this one on one of my other blogs, 97secondswithgod.com but it was too tempting to pass up. If you’ve never heard an “unspoken prayer request” then let me enlighten you. This is when someone has done something they don’t want to share and instead of just swallowing it until they are able to share the specific incident they say they have an “unspoken prayer request.” If you’re being honest and intimate with a group of people it seems silly, but if you’re in mixed company and feel shy about telling girls your junk I can see why you might use this method. Then again, maybe the bigger issue is why you’re telling girls your junk in the first place. Girls, get some girls you can be real with. Guys, get some guys you can be real with.
P.S. Whenever I hear someone ask for an unspoken prayer request I think in my head, “that dude is having an affair, he laundered money, he is making meth in his basement or he is doing all of the above.” That’s why it’s usually better to just be upfront.
