Praying for Lower Gas Prices

Good news everybody!

WASHINGTON, April 26 (UPI) — A U.S. Christian group has grown tired of escalating gasoline prices and is set to stage a national prayer rally to lower the numbers at the pumps.

Various Christian clergy from around the country will convene around a Washington, D.C., gas station Thursday at noon to pray. For those who can’t attend, a live Internet site and toll-free prayer line have been established.

In a release, the Pray Live group said many people are “overlooking the power of prayer when it comes to resolving this energy crisis.”

Apart from sending a message to God, the rally had a message for humanity, said Wenda Royster, the group’s founder.

“It is our hope that seeing and hearing some of the nation’s most powerful preachers gathered around a gas station and the United States capital as a backdrop, will remind everyone who is really in charge of our world — God,” Royster said.

  1. Now THAT is comedy. They better hope the one true God isn’t Allah, otherwise their prayers might cause the prices to go UP.

  2. As crazy as these people sound, remember, this is the same process that the President has admitted to using to come to the descision to go to war with Iraq in the first place!

  3. While they’re at it, they might as well pray for lower prescription prices, lower housing costs, lower insurance premiums, lower property taxes, lower text messaging rates… um… yeah… praying should do the trick!

  4. I actually hope a gas station employee goes out WHILE THEY’RE PRAYING to raise the price on the sign. I’d actually buy it at the higher price just to see that.
