Moshe is going through a rough spot in his life. His business isn’t doing well, he’s got a bunch of kids to feed, and his wife is pressuring him.
Every morning, he goes to synagogue and prays, “Please, God, let me win the lottery. Nothing else can fix my life like winning the lottery.” Morning after morning after morning he prays “Please, God, let me win the lottery!”
Finally, he receives an answer. In the middle of his prayers, God speaks to him and says, “Moshe, meet me halfway. Buy a ticket!”
