I pray, both out loud and silently. I pray in a church, sometimes in my office, sometimes as I'm walking somewhere and take in what is around me. In other words, I don't have a problem with prayer or people who choose to pray.
But I am not a Prayer Warrior, and I am not a member of any task force for prayer. I have always felt uncomfortable about the National Day of Prayer because it has always felt like its aim was for a certain type of prayer for a certain type of person... and I did not fit that mold.
Clearly, I am one who must be prayed for!
Just look at the images in the promo video. I mean, if we don't pray, then we won't be able to ward off the darkness that is hovering over... let's see, the White House and, oh, yes: San Francisco! Not to mention the Midwestern farmland of the U.S. I'm thinking that's Fulton, Missouri.
I have to say that after watching this video I am more convinced than ever that these folks are just wacko. Thankfully, there is a parody of the "Task Force Trailer" that helps to mitigate for its misery.
I pray God will accept my prayers and supplications... and a pastrami on rye!
