According to the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN), today is the Day of Prayer for the World's Economies.

For these and other reasons Cindy is calling for a Day of Prayer for the World's Economies on Wednesday, October 29, 2008. They are calling for prayer for the stock markets, banks, and financial institutions of the world on the date the stock market crashed in 1929. They are meeting at the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and its 12 principal branches around the US that day.

The Wonkette directs us to this delightful scene. See anything wrong with this picture?

Well here they are, at the Wall Street bull statue thing, praying to Jesus for money. The dingbat has explained, "We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the 'Lion's Market,' or God's control over the economic systems."

Pardon me while I puke into my church bulletin.

Jovial, I like you more and more each time I read something you write. This made me snort coffee.

Dan - ha! Thanks. It's also neat reading things from your perspective, given your background. I think we could learn a lot from one another.

pretty disgusting. i have to wonder whom these people think they're praying to. additionally, what a convenient reason not to separate church and state. my favorite part about this entire incident is that it blows the prosperity docterine out of the water for the most part.
