IN NEED OF PRAYER: In a plastic shopping bag.

COMPLIED BY SUBAJAYANTHI B.

Bill Lacovara of New Jersey has found 300 letters to God floating in the Atlantic Ocean. The letters, sent to Rev. Grady Cooper, a Baptist clergyman who died in 2004, were mysteriously wound up in a sealed plastic shopping bag. Bill, who was on a fishing trip when he found the letters, has said he will donate them to a church instead of selling them on eBay, following protests from religious people. The letters include one from a prisoner who said he was innocent and wanted to be home with his family, and one from a man who wanted God's help to win the lottery.
