GN 18:20-32  Abraham negotiates with the LORD to spare Sodom if 50 45 40 30 20 10 innocent people are found in it.

PS 138:1-2, 2-3, 6-7, 7-8  Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me.  In the presence of the angels I will sing your praise.

COL 2:12-14  In baptism, you were buried then raised with Christ, forgiven.

LK 11:1-13  "Teach us to pray."  "Our Father..."  Importunate friend appeased. Ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened.  What father would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish?   Father in heaven will give Holy Spirit to those who ask.

Lucy painted the fish from the Gospel onto my thumb.  (A dove would have also worked.)

PS:  If I were wearing a tie today, I would have pulled out my calculator tie and abacus and "angel" tie pins. There have been and will be other opportunities...
