The Taser's Edge


Show God You’re Serious. Get the Complete Rosary Package.

Monday morning Zack sent me the link to Information Age Prayer.  From the site:

“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.

We use state of the art text to speech synthesizers to voice each prayer at a volume and speed equivalent to typical person praying. Each prayer is voiced individually, with the name of the subscriber displayed on screen.”

But don’t think that means you can totally get out of praying:

“At Information Age Prayer we think our service should be used like a prayer supplement, to extend and strengthen a subscriber’s connection with God. Traditional prayer is an integral part of this connection and should never be forgone, even after signing up.”

What is nice about the service, however, is that it can probably help you keep your bases covered.  Make sure prayers are being said on your behalf for all the major religions.  Now that I mention it, I’m not really sure why they don’t offer that as a discount package.

Funny that this comes up, as I was talking to a friend Sunday night and he and his wife both agreed that he is terrible at praying (although he does claim to have an excellent theology of prayer, and is indeed a future Ph.D. student in Theology).  This might be God’s answer to his non-prayers that he was looking for.

I went through checkout just to make sure it wasn’t a fake site.  Check out my first purchase:

information-age-prayer-invoice1I’ll let you know how many more blessings I see in the coming month.  My only critique of the site thus far is that it wouldn’t pray the Prayer of Jabez for me.  (As a whole, the Protestant prayer section is kind of weak, so I would suggest Catholic or Jewish prayers, if you’re Protestant.)  I guess I’ll have to get God to enlarge my territories the old-fashioned way, through a pirated prayer-sharing site that will get around those pesky royalties paid to Bruce Wilkinson every time someone prays the Prayer of Jabez.  Don’t worry.  Most of the prayers I download are public domain anyway, not prayed by James Earl Jones or the Pope or anything, so I don’t think I’ll get caught.

As in, the best post on Taser’s Edge, or the best entry describing the prayer site you have found on the web, or…?
