A courier was travelling across country on a horse. He was in a hurry and rode the horse too hard, so it foundered. Needing to continue on his journey, he went up to a nearby farm and asked the farmer if he could buy a horse.

"The only horse I have is this one," the farmer said.

"Fine, I'll take it," the courier replied and jumped on the horse's back.

The rather religious farmer told the courier how to control the horse. "Say 'Praise the Lord' to get the horse to go and 'Amen' to get it to stop."

So with a quick "Praise the Lord," the courier was on his way. He made good time, and his mind wandered as the countryside flew by. Looking up after a while, the courier realized that a cliff was coming up, but the horse was showing no indication of slowing down. He began to panic as the cliff loomed closer, and he found he could not remember the command to stop the horse. In a real fright, the courier prayed earnestly for a reminder, and finished his prayer with "Amen."

The horse came to a screeching halt at the edge of the cliff. Looking down over the edge, the relieved courier exclaimed loudly, "Praise the Lord!"

Received from Timothy Anger.
