A friend sent me a story about a guy who believes it is possible to challenge the price of gas with prayer. I thought about this the other day when I went to my old church - a funky, small, charismatic church headed by two women who believe very strongly in the power of prayer. The were holding a Saturday morning women's breakfast, and they began with an all-church prayer session. One of the prayers on their agenda was bringing down the price of gas. One of the two women pastors is so funny, because she really prays in a matter of fact way, with a child-like faith, totally believing in what she is asking for.
As she prayed I thought, "can we believe for this, or are we going to have to suffer the high price of gas, and watch it keep soaring, and hang on until the rapture?"
