I bet ghawd has a fervor meter that checks incoming prayers, and if a prayer doesn't meet a certain fervency level, it doesn't reach his ears. Prayers of lower fervency level are heard by Joseph Smith, Mother Theresa, Cardinal Lou Ferrigno or Mamie Eisenhower, etc.
We mere mortals can't really judge fervor; all we can do is award style points.
Yeah. I suspect Jackie Kennedy made such a splash with the public primarily because she followed Mamie Eisenhower. That being said, I would gladly take a return to tacky as opposed to everything and everyone currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

You're right as usual. Though the present first lady is among the less tacky members the present First Family, that alone does not say much, as tackiness, as are so many other qualities, is relative. Roseanne Roseannadanna would have been low on the tackiness continuum as measured against the members of the first family, either collectively or individually.

Worked for me. I prayed like a Boss and left the church.
Pray frequently and for everything (the key to successful prayer)... don't pray to long or fervently about anything... your odds go down and time is wasted... example... I prayed 50 times already today about stuff and expect at least two of those to be answered... you gotta keep the game real!
Grab the prayer roll. I thought it was more important HOW MANY you can get to pray for what you want like a popularity contest. Apparently God listens more if there are a lot of people trying to persuade Him about something.
