salvation + dedre

“Have you ever said the Salvation Prayer?” “The Salvation Prayer? I’ve never heard of it. I did a lot of praying growing up but I don’t think any of the prayers I said went by that name.” “It will save you. Will you say the prayer with me?”

I practice yes.

With our hands embraced, I repeated several lines after her. “You will be saved. You won’t go to hell with this prayer.” “But only if I mean what I say.” “That’s right. Only if you mean it.”

She never asked if I meant it.

She also called me Dedre for the two hours I was there. I let it go uncorrected.
