Politics, diplomacy, and economic strategies have not been able to halt the spike in gas prices, but a Maryland man is coming to Toledo today with a different plan: prayer.

"We've tried everything and just nothing seems to be working, so we're going to ask God to intervene and help us overcome this terrible crisis," said Rocky Twyman, founder of the Pray at the Pump Movement.

Mr. Twyman was invited by the Rev. Mike Fortune, pastor of Toledo's First Seventh-day Adventist Church, to lead "pray-ins" at local gas stations, host a citizens' forum, and participate in an all-night prayer session in hopes of bringing gas prices tumbling down like the walls of Jericho.

Mr. Twyman designated today, the day before the official start of summer, as "National Pray Down the High Gas Prices Day."

To be fair they're asking for god to help guide advances in solar power as well.

And you know that if gas prices go down, it's proof that god exists and answered their prayers. If they stay the same or rise, then "he works in mysterious ways." Also proof.

I give you what went through Gelfin's mind in terrible five minute comic strip form:

Oh, I thought they were just putting them lower, so you could see them better.

God fixes everything. Right?

Or is it opposite?

C'mon...God already gave us the freaking sun, and now they want his help to use it as well? How lazy can you get? ;)

I keep on picturing some concerned manager telling these people that they can't have a pray-in at the gas station for fear that lightning might strike. :D

I thought you meant this:

McCain calls for $300 million prize for car battery (http://uk.reuters.com/article/oilRpt/idUKN2328886220080623)

... but what's sad is that I can't tell which idea is sillier and which will actually accomplish something sooner. :rolleyes:
