MT. MORRIS TOWNSHIP, Mich. â€” Hold the pickles, mustard, ketchup, tomatoes, buns, burgers and french fries.
The only item on the menu in the Cathedral of Faith Church of God in Christ parking lot is prayers.
Customers didn't even have to get out of their cars. Those who pulled in filled out a form saying what they wanted to pray about and drove over to the other side of the church. Patrons rolled down their windows, and the Rev. Chris Martin or another minister held their hands and prayed while the cars idled....
I can agree with praying with and for other people, but I don't agree with doing prayer in a drive-thru manner. Jesus says "My house shall be a house of prayer." Open up the doors and welcome people into the house of worship and there pray for them. I personally feel these Pentecostal churches are trying to pattern themselves after the world to draw people, with drive-thru prayer and fear factor contests. They too often imitate the culture instead of the Apostles. Let us be content with the Word of God.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any crazier...do people really think God honors a drive-thru prayer? Do they not understand what a privilege it is to come before the throne of grace and commune with a Holy, Righteous, Sovereign God? Maranatha
"Excuse me reverend. How much more is it to super-size my prayer? Are refills included or is that for 'pray-in' customers only? Can I choose which batman toy I can get for my kids? I sin a lot so, will the drive-thru be open 24-hours?"
