…because it works so well for heart patients.
Last Thursday various Christian clergy representatives got together at a Washington D.C. gas station and held a prayer rally beseeching God to send them some cheap gas:
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.
And God said, “NO GAS FOR YOU! BANNED! TWO YEARS! NOW GO!” No, wait, that’s the Soup Nazi. So far God has responded by, well, not doing much in particular. Gas prices remain high and none of the oil-wealthy nations of the middle east up and suddenly converted to a Western loving Christian democracy offering us unlimited access to their oil reserves at discount prices. Nor have any huge supplies of oil suddenly turned up in a previously explored and thought to be barren section of the United States with a huge 40 foot sign made out of burning letters spelling out FREE OIL HERE, COURTESY OF YOUR FRIEND, GOD!
But, you know, these things probably take more time than we might think. Christ, he had to rest after 7 days because Creation really took the wind out of his sails. He’s never really been the same since. Slacker.
