The Million Prayer March

The Million Prayer March was set up to collect one million prayers for peace in the Middle East. James Twyman, author and Peace Troubadour, set up this website after Arafat said that peace will not come to Middle East without a million strong prayers. Once the site has collected one million prayers, Twyman will travel to Israel with all the prayers to present them to Arafat and Barak. I was prayer no 78536.

Amazing how quickly the phrase "Million (foo) March", where (foo) is your cause du jour, has become a standard. Thank you, Louis Farrakhan!

The page was down. I couldn't post my prayer there, so I'll post it here.
"I am not a Jew
I am not an Arab.
I am a human.
When a man is killed,
I lose a brother.
I am tired of losing brothers."

That page IS up. But if you choose to add a prayer, you get a 404.

Server Gods might not be in favor of Middle East peace.

My Prayer:

Please let us not simplify
the shit out of this conflict;
Please stop Israel from deploying its
US-financed arsenal against unarmed civilians;
Please stop Israel from building
settlements on occupied land;
Please stop Arafat from
bargaining away the Palestinians future.

I'm sure this site is destined to be at least as effective as anything else the average citizen might be able to do about the Middle East situation, i.e. not at all, which is rather depressing.

Here's one: Dear Lord, Since you don't affect the world, it is up to humans to help themselves.
