Requests for week of 7/17/11

Ken must be afraid of being Hovindized in the UK
Quote
AiG-U.K.
Project: End of year accounts

Purpose: To finalise our financial records for the last year

Specifics: Please pray for accuracy and wisdom for our book keeper as she puts together the accounts and matches up all the necessary invoices and payments.

Deadline: A.S.A.P.


In additon we learn something about how to do research:
Quote
Reseaech
Project: Research Team

Specifics: Praise that the observatory construction is on schedule and prayer that the project will be completed in a timely fashion.
Pray for new and continued funding for research.
Pray for the team of scientists working with AiG to determine the kinds of animals that were on Noah's ark. This is needed for the design and construction of the ark at Ark Encounter
Pray that Dr. Snelling, Dr. Lisle, and Dr. Purdom will have time to do needed research in addition to fulfilling their many other roles.
As if the bible didn't clearly state what Noah did.

Hovind must have heard what happened to Bully.  

As for the rest, since prayer is considered just fine for fixing the weather and the budget (instead of, say, the politician actually doing their job) - if it can do those, why not research as well?

It makes me wonder who God might pray to when traffic on the Etherial Net gets too heavy - "???? save me from all these idiot prayer requests!  What, do they think I'm mortal or something?  I'm omniscient, for my sake!  I know what they're going to think before the thought has even popped into their little pea-brains.  I sure as The Other Place don't need them hogging bandwidth yapping about it the whole time!"

Perry prayed for rain.  I guess the answer was 'no'.

I suspect that the full answer would be "Hey morons, quit screwing up the entire planet I gave you.  Geez, how can one species fuck everything up so badly.  They're going to get a self made flood this time."

At least for Dr. Purdom we have more information from an earlier prayer:
Quote
Department: Research

Purpose: To visit the Galapagos Islands in order to study their plants and animals, especially the process of natural selection claimed by Charles Darwin that evidently caused variations in their features.

Specifics: Safety in travel for Dr. Georgia Purdom (and the homeschool group she is accompanying), a rewarding time of research (and instruction of the students) while on the islands, and good success in photography and study of the plants and animals. Also pray for her family in her absence.

Deadline: May 21?June 5, 2011
The outcome of her research is quite predictable.

Requests for week of 8/28/11

Since it is still online the ASAP deadline in their prayers obviously doesn't help much.

Meanwhile it gets rediculous. These clowns can't even count without praying to prevent mistakes:
 
Quote
Project: Inventory Audit

Purpose: We are doing a manual count of all product in order to verify or correct software system count

Specifics: Please pray for: Accurate counts, accurate programming to follow, desired ends met

Deadline: 9/4/2011

Whereas I believe our Lord would love this prayer from all of us:

Oh Lord, please infuse those morons with wisdom!

Their god seems to have lost interest in the prayer-phone after 2008, having picked up 25 or more times in that year, but only once in 2009, three times in 2010, and straight to voice-mail in 2011 to date.

Take the hint, Ken! Stop with the ask-ask-asking!

Too bad I don't see a link to a Please STFU Prayer...

I might be tempted to use it.

Should we conclude from all this that they're a non-profit organization? (Or is that non-prophet?)

They don't want the bottom line to show a false profit.
