“Professional Hopers” / Memorable Fancies #1999

Now that prayer has become vanishingly efficacious, the profession of Hoper has arisen to fill the gap. The problem with prayer has been that it substitutes for action – leaving to God what we could have been doing ourselves, or at least trying to do.

But now, the Professional Hoper will not only (for a fee) hope for whatever future you want to see happen, but will (for a substantial extra fee) make it come true.

Or convince you that what you hoped for, despite all appearances, has really happened. Something like prayer.
