I guess it was bound to happen eventually. It always does.

When things get bad – and stay bad for long enough – people eventually give up on the promises of politicians and lose faith in the fleeting miracles of our free markets. Eventually they always turn back to God.

And so it was today in Toledo, Ohio where a group of people from as far away as D.C. gathered at a local gas station to pray for lower fuel prices.

As cars surged steadily down McCord Road, a familiar melody rose from the circle of people beside the gas pumps at the Exxon-Mobil station on the corner of Hill Avenue.

“He’s got the gas prices, in His hands. He’s got the gas prices, in His hands …”

Heads bowed and hands clasped, Rocky Twyman and the congregants of his small worship session hoped to do what the country’s leaders haven’t: Put an end to the steep increase in national fuel prices.

  • LOL. So are you saying people cling to religion and lower gas prices Joseph?

  • Len

    Prayer: how to do nothing and still think you’re helping.

  • Well, God *did* tell George W. Bush to start the war in Iraq. That piece of divine intervention both bumped the price of oil and sent the dollar into deep decline, raising the price of gas for American consumers. So why shouldn’t God change Her mind and lower gas prices again?

  • Amen, Notta.
