Would You Pay Someone To Say A Prayer For You?

There's a new Web site, Information Age Prayer, which is now selling daily prayers:

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.

For $3.95 per month you can choose from prayers for Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and even those unaffiliated with any organized religion. Some prices vary, however, depending on the type and length of the prayer. Shorter prayers are cheaper and prayers for financial help are sold at a discount. However, this services has a handy disclaimer.

We make no claims regarding the efficacy of the service. Actual results will vary for each and every subscriber. Information Age Prayer is not a golden ticket to solve your problems and it is most definitely not a selling of indulgences. Information Age Prayer gives no guarantee that any effect the prayer has will be measurable by any means whatsoever. By using this web site you also agree to indemnify Information Age Prayer and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, consultants and employees and hold them harmless from any and all claims and expenses, including attorney’s fees arising from your use of this Service and Website and arising from the use of this Service by anyone else.

I’m not sure how much money the Information Age Prayer service has made or how many people would be stupid enough to pay for something they can hit their knees every day and do for free (heck, you don't even have to hit your knees to pray ), but it seems to be a mark of today’s pay to play society. There’s no free lunch, not even with God, apparently.
