Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with bottomless trust:
“No king, however great and mighty, has ever asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or astrologer.”

get a leg up.
Intelligent leaders have always known these people are bogus
but a sufficiently desperate leader

to escape something I don’t want

laying my Bible aside
giving up on prayer
abandoning my God-given good sense?
If that’s happening, please show me
so I can eject these fast-talking phonies
from my life.
