During one evening sermon, Richard attempts to allay his grandmother's pressures by telling her that if he saw an angel like Jacob, he would believe in God. But she mishears him and thinking that Richard has actually seen an angel, proceeds to tell the entire congregation. The incident causes Granny a great embarrassment and, out of guilt, Richard promises to pray for an hour each day.
