Song About God's Less Inspiring Miracles: "Thank You God!"

I have always found it puzzling that people will believe that God has performed miracles of the most trifling sort - influencing the outcome of football games, for example - while leaving the massive problems that plague the planet and its peoples untouched by his omnipotence.  So, for all of you who feel the same way, this song's for you.

By the way, I didn't really time this for Easter; I just finally got around to recording it.

And I don't mean to pick on Kurt Warner in the video that opens the song; he's just a good example of what I'm writing about.

And, finally, yes I know that Tim Minchin has a song on his new album that is also called "Thank You God." It covers similar ground, although the two songs are obviously very different in every other way.
