Otha claimed that there were days he didn’t pray because he was busy or didn’t think of it. However, when that happened, he came upon a dropped or lost penny. It just showed up to remind him.
Praying from a Penny
Most people think to wish on a penny, but Otha prays on one. He’d been religious all his life, and his faith grew as he got older. That’s how the penny obsession started; he saw those pennies as a personal gift from God and never realized how many gifts he could get.
