The supervisor sent Eliza to the Department of Answered Prayers, Eliza went there immediately and found it in a state of massive disrepair. Eliza met her lone co-worker, Carl, he told of the rules of answering prayers. Back with God, God expressed sadness over people not partaking in animal sacrifice for him anymore.

God decided to do something to help Earth, he announced his plan to destroy Earth. The employees of Heaven began to panic over the destruction of Earth.

She offered God a bet, if she could answer one of the impossible prayers God would spare Earth. Eliza went and explained her newest assignment too Craig. Craig was not interested in helping Eliza as she did not understand his job. After helping Craig finish the prayer he was working on, he agreed to help her.
A Prayer to Answer
After going out for some burgers, Eliza found what seemed to a fairly simple prayer for them to answer. A couple on Earth had both expressed a desire to continue their romantic relationship. Eliza showed this prayer too Craig and he agreed that the prayer would be possible to answer. Craig and Eliza went to God and told him their plan. God asserted that in order for the prayer to be officially answered, the pair had to kiss. God told them that he believed the prayer they had chosen was the most difficult to answer out of all of the options he had given them. Eliza and Craig returned to their workspace and learned that one of the prayers that they had answered earlier in the day aided a serial killer.
