I’ve recently learned from Streetsblog that a church choir director from the suburbs of Washington DC is leading groups around the nation in prayers for lower gas prices.
“God, deliver us from these high gas prices,” Twyman said. “That’s all they have to say.”
THAT should work, right?
According to a San Franciso Chronicle article, Rocky Twyman has been traveling around the country staging pray-ins: “God is the only one we can turn to at this point,” said Twyman, 59. “Our leaders don’t seem to be able to do anything about it. The prices keep soaring and soaring.”
To his credit, Twyman also points out that we mortals have to take some responsibility for ourselves:
Twyman knows his approach to gasoline prices may sound simplistic. He’s quick to point out that anyone praying for cheaper fuel also has an obligation to do something more active about the problem.
“People have to walk more, leave those cars at home, and carpool, man,” he said. “We have to become more practical.”
Well, yeah. And for a few extra spiritual points, how about this:
