Thank God!

This guy, lost in the desert for two weeks, finally spots a small oasis and crawls up to it before collapsing. The resident missionary finds him just in time, and slowly nurses him back to health.

Fully recovered the grateful guy wants to get back to civilization and asks his benefactor, "Could I borrow your horse, and give it back later, or possibly leave it for you in the next town?"

The missionary says, "Surely, you may, but there's one special thing about my horse. Instead of 'giddiup' you have to say 'Thank God' to make him go...and you have to say 'Amen' to make him stop. He won't respond to 'whoa.'"

Not paying much attention, the guy says, "Sure, Ok," mounts the horse and starts off with an initial "Thank God."

The horse starts walking slowly when the the guy repeats, "Thank God, thank God," and the horse starts trotting.

Encouraged by this, the guy then shouts, "Thank God, thank God, thank God!" and the horse just takes off at full tilt.

However, pretty soon the guy sees a cliff coming up ahead, and starts doing everything he can to make the horse stop.

"Whoa!!...Stop!!...Hold on!!" he screams - but to no avail.

The horse doesn't stop! Finally, he remembers what the missionary said and shouts, "Amen," and the horse slows just in time, just inches away from the precipice.

Relieved with still being alive, the guy leans back in the saddle, wipes his brow and audibly sighs, "Thank God."
