If I were god I would certainly be a just and benevolent ruler of all things. Generous to a fault, even. -though really, who would dare fault me? Neitzsche, shut yer hole! But that doesn’t mean I don’t need to see a little effort. Make yourself stand out a little. I too crave entertainment. You have a request? Earn it, baby.
I pray to thee my only god
With a request that’s a little odd

Rather than asking for divine intervention to make the Giants somehow fail, for example, you should ask for divine guidance to somehow make yourself less of a douche. That, I’d be willing to help you with.
’s team, but they’d be this God’s rented mule. (Judging by the current season, they’re everybody’s rented mule) America
So send in your prayers and if they're good, and in iambic pentameter (that's a Shakespearian rhyming pattern for all you Jersey Shore fans out there) I'd not only post your prayers, I'd grant them -if I were God or had His powers.*
