Focus on the Family's prayers answered

Focus on the Family told its followers to pray for rain on Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention, and as it turns out, there was some flooding. But the flooding filled the Fox skybox in the Pepsi Center with 50 to 100 gallons of water per minute for about five minutes when the fire suppression sprinkler system went off. A little bit off from the desired location in both time and space, yet somehow more appropriate.

God works in mysterious ways.

Obama speaks tomorrow evening at Invesco Field. California pastor Wiley Drake has been praying for rain every morning for the past two weeks, and is inviting Christians from around the country to join him tomorrow night on a two-hour conference call to pray for rain on Obama.'s forecast for Denver tomorrow is sunny with a high of 82 degrees Fahrenheit and 0% change of precipitation, though it's partly cloudy with 10% chance of precipitation tonight.

UPDATE (August 30, 2008): And now it looks like Hurricane Gustav may cause the Republican National Convention to be suspended!

If you liked "Pray for Rain", you will love the new parody video: Pray for Diarrhea.

This is evidence that there is a God -- and he's got a sense of humour, dislikes FOX, and is thumbing his divine nose at FoF.

I think I like this guy ;-).
