Joseph and the Lottery

Joseph is poor and desperate. He is a devout man and prays earnestly to God to let him win the lottery. After a few days, he becomes quite frustrated and pleads with God again: "Dear God, have I not been Your devoted servant?" Have I not obeyed your every command? Have I not been good to my dear wife, Rachel, and provided for my lovely daughters, Loti, Doti and Moti? All in your honour? I beg you, I beg you, Father, Lord of Lords, just once, let me win this lottery! Just once! Please! Please, Dearest God..."

Suddenly a great crack from the sky sounded, louder than the loudest of loud thunder. And a booming voice spoke these words: "Joseph, for My Sake, at least please buy a ticket!"

A normal phrase.
