Hi all,

While watching an episode of Dalziel and Pascoe, I heard someone say "from your mouth to god's ears".

I tried some on-line dictionaries but without any result. Can somebody explain the meaning of this sentence to me?

Thanks!

Thanks a lot for the quick reply! I had a feeling it meant something like that.

Cheers,

Fredje

I think it means My prayer is the same as yours.

hey. thanks for your post on this Terri. A friend of mine and I just got cc'd on an email and realized neither of us knew exactly what this expression meant. I'm buying your explanation! You saved me (and my friend) a lot of time and frustration today!

Is this the same "Anonymous"?
