Distractions at Prayer Story

Story title: Distractions At Prayer 
By: Bruno Hagspiel

     While journeying on horseback one day, St. Benedict met a farmer walking along. "You've got any easy job." said the farmer. "Why don't I become a man of prayer? Then I, too, would be travelling on horseback."
     "You think praying is easy replied the saint." If you can say one 'Out Father' without any distraction, you can have this horse."

  "Its a bargain." said the surprised farmer.
    Closing his eyes and folding his hands, he began to say the "Our Father" aloud: "Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by thy name, thy kindom come..."
    Suddenly he stopped and looked up, "Shall I get the saddle and bridle, too?"
