In Chapter 8, Huck thinks that the parson or somebody must have prayed that the bread would find him. While that may have been true, the parson would have meant for the bread to find Huck's nonexistent dead body in the river, not the live Huck's mouth. But technically, either way, the parson's prayer was answered. It just goes to show that God has the ability to twist your prayers and wishes so that you get what you want, but in a way that is different than what you would expect.
