Praying at the pump.

War, terrorism, corruption at the highest levels of government, global warming: with so much weighing heavy on our souls, some Christians are urging us to pray.

For low gas prices.
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.

The Web site is at praylive.com. The toll-free phone number is 888-PRAYLIVE.

Next can we pray that the price of Heroine goes down?

It takes pain to break an addiction. I hope it continues to go up despite how it is changing my life. God may well be forcing our hand into being better environmental stewards and looking into alternative fuel sources.
