A story was told about a man who fervently prayed to God, asking God to let him strike the lottery jackpot. He is a man who diligently fulfils all his religious responsibilities and was a man of faith. He too, never gave up, keep praying and believing that his prayer will one day be answered.

Alas… he never did, and died without his prayer answered.

Upon meeting God in heaven, he asked why his prayer was never answered despite being faithful and all. The answer God gave was…

“I cannot let you win the lottery when you never buy a lottery ticket”


Another story was told about the people of this nation, who fervently prayed to God asking for changes to happen in their nation. Drastic changes were required; else the nation will fall into oblivion.

This people are men and women of faith too, never gave in praying and organised mass fasting rallies and forging huge prayer groups.

Alas… changes never happen, and many died with their wish unfulfilled.

Upon meeting God in heaven; naturally, they asked of God why their fervent prayer was never answered. And God replied…

“I cannot let changes happen when you never register to vote and vote”

I'd like to be God just to kick the butts of corrupt and useless ppl into hell. Good field goal practising.

I'm waiting and wondering if our PM (with tiger of a wife) is going to call for election soon. There's little money in the gov's and BN's kitty so possibility it will be later on only. As for me, no matter when or what - it's 2 Xs against the hideous blue scales. :P

Dear Zewt

I like the way you put the stories together.

Too many people, especially those in our 'bracket', do not see the importance to register as a voter and to carry out this duty.
