The (economic) power of prayer?
I wrote about Pray At The Pump about a month ago, and now they’re claiming victory. They believe their prayers have actually caused the price of gas to drop:
“We were down in Huntsville, Alabama. We finished praying,” Mr Twyman said. “Immediately the owners came out and changed the gas prices. They brought it down. We had marvellous success down in St Louis, Missouri.”
This week the group returned to the site of their first prayer meeting to celebrate. Singing “We shall overcome,” they changed the words of the well-known hymn to “We’ll have lower gas prices”.
I can’t wait to see what they’re going to pray for next.
I’m not a religious person, but it strikes me that this is the sort of thing you’re not supposed to pray for…
They can pray me up a raise. Or Rosario Dawson.
Yeesh. Let’s see, there are people dying in multiple wars around the globe, people starving to death all over the world, people being thrown out of their homes because they can no longer afford the mortgage, daily murders in DC alone… I think we should pray for lower gas prices. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
