Now You Really CAN Pray Without Ceasing…

Finally! A new web technology for Christians NOT developed by LifeChurch.tv! Not sure why Bobby and Terry passed on this one, but According to the Information Age Prayer website..."Information Age Prayer is a subscription service utilizing a computer with text-to-speech capability to incant your prayers each day. It gives you the satisfaction of knowing that your prayers will always be said even if you wake up late, or forget. We use state of the art text to speech synthesizers to voice each prayer at a volume and speed equivalent to typical person praying. Each prayer is voiced individually, with the name of the subscriber displayed on screen. At Information Age Prayer we think our service should be used like a prayer supplement, to extend and strengthen a subscriber's connection with God. Traditional prayer is an integral part of this connection and should never be forgone, even after signing up."

Wow... kind of like a prayer for hire thing. And what's best... you can enroll for the protestant, catholic, jewish, muslim, or 'unaffiliated' automatic prayers.

Here are some of the prayers you can order:

Morning Prayer:  The morning prayer is meant to be said each morning. A nice, short prayer, it has all the basic essentials important in a daily prayer. Subscribe to tell God that you think of him each morning!  Just $3.95/month

Prayer for the Deceased:  The prayer for the deceased implores God to “grant [their soul] an entrance into the land of light and joy.” Remember your loved ones, insert the name of the deceased and subscribe here.  Just $4.95/month

Prayer for the Sick:  The prayer for the sick implores God to bring a sick person back to full health. Insert the name of the sick person and have the computer voice the prayer for them each day by subscribing here. Just $4.95/month

Prayer for World Peace:  This is a special prayer that is not religion specific. It can be said by anyone, and it may affect everyone! Do you feel the need to make a difference in these times? Tell God that you care about His world and all His subjects with our prayer service for world peace. Just $3.95/month.

Prayer for Financial Help:  We are all hurting as the world economy slumps. This prayer asks God to improve the economy and to enable us to support ourselves “in honor but not in disgrace.” For obvious reasons we provide this service at a considerable discount! Take care, this prayer is not an alternative to fiscal responsibility! (NOTE THE DISCLAIMER) Just $3.95/month

Prayer for your Children:  This prayer asks of God to watch over your children, allow them to do good, and to keep them from harm. “May God bless you and watch over you [the child].” This is the cheapest prayer you can get for the Information Age, it can be said each day for an entire month for only $1.99.

Or, (this is my favorite)… you can get the Protestant Prayer Bundle:  Special Discount Package
The Lords Prayer, The Morning Prayer, 5 Get Well Prayers and Peace Prayer, only $19.95 each Month

    Buddhism already has perfected this concept, with prayer banners (prayers released in the wind as they flutter) and prayer wheels (prayers released as someone comes by and spin them).  I saw each by the hundreds when visiting a major Buddhist temple in Nepal.

    And it was cheaper.

    The same thing sprung to my mind.  Kind of like the scene in, “The Golden Child,” where Eddie Murphy starts scratching on the wheel like it was an LP.  “I-I-I-I want the kniiiiiife… please....”

    This really is hysterical. I wrote about it last week on my blog:

    Reminds me of Hamlet: “My prayers rise up; my thoughts remain below. Prayers without thoughts ne’er to heaven go.”
    Just another gimmick for the pseudo-spiritual, sound and fury, signifying nothing.
    If you’re too busy to pray (for real), you’re too busy.

    One thing you can bet. If it becomes financially successful, Paul Crouch and TBN will buy it up.

    Paying for prayers?  Isn’t that like paying for sex.  Just when I thought the Christian church couldn’t get any more bizzare.
