I also wanted to give out this April fools day prayer!
“God of fun, keep April Fool’s Day safe for all. Let laughter and joy abound, and help all rejoice in a new month with You. Amen.”
Sometimes, one might take a prank or joke personally. The following bullet prayer, a repeated prayer, might calm anxiety when April Fool’s Day rubs the wrong way:
“God of (insert funniest thing one can think of at the time), let me laugh. Amen.”
Repeat this prayer and the image that comes to mind with it when grumpy or upset about an April Fool’s prank . The exercise may, eventually, change one’s attitude. Of course, no amount of prayer will rectify a tasteless or harmful joke. In that case, a more direct approach may be warrented.
Don't forget the jokes! Sorry had to include those!
Q. What excuse did Adam give to his children as to why he no longer lived in Eden?
A. Your mother ate us out of house and home.
Anonymous-- nope WQ, you were wrong :-)
About what? Christians being the bigger fools for believing in fairy tales? Saying that god doesn't exist because you can't provide one iota of proof that he does? It's really hard to take you seriously when you hide behind the anonymous tab. It tells me that you have doubts of your own, or you would stand up with a little more courage and a little more faith.

To some extent it is nonsense, because knowledge rarely stems from fear. So "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge" isn't a very good starting point. Though "but fools despise wisdom and discipline" makes some sense. What it really boils down to, unfortunately, is that someone was saying "you can't be wise or knowledgeable unless you believe what I do and fear learning from those who do not agree."
