praying to a golden calf

boing boing and science blogs as well as other sites have highlighted this...
Christian are concerned, quite reasonably, about the economy, and have chosen, to try and correct the problem with prayer. That is certainly part of the solution... however, how some of chosen to pray is pretty unbiblical! [I suppose it is biblical - in that it is in the bible... it's just that Exodus 32 takes a pretty dim view of this activity (to put it mildly)]

boing boing quotes:
Did you know that some Christian dingbat has dubbed today the “Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies?” Well here they are, at the Wall Street bull statue thing, praying to Jesus for money. The dingbat has explained, “We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the ‘Lion’s Market,’ or God’s control over the economic systems.”
