Today's prayer service for rain won't make Jesus very happy:
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full.
His displeasure is already evident, as Andisheh reports:
I will tell you this — when Scott Henry and I arrived at the service, it was overcast. When we left, the sky over the Gold Dome was blue.
As a side note, I've suggested that my editors here at the local organ rework the famous New York Daily News headline if we don't see significant rainfall within the week:
GOD TO PERDUE: DROP DEAD
On second thought, probably not a good idea -- Christian fundamentalists (including Sonny) may take it literally.
