A missionary met a lion as he was walking from one village to another.
The missionary fell to his knees and buried his face in his hands.
But nothing happened and the lion was silent. So the missionary peeped through his fingers and saw the lion on its knees, its face buried in his paws.

The missionary in a trembling voice, “I am praying to be delivered from the jaws of death. But what on earth are you doing?”

The lion growled, “I’m saying grace.”
