Weather Prayer Group Really Works
Miami turns to prayer group to 'dissipate' severe weather.
On Monday, when it appeared that Mother Nature would unleash nasty weather, city officials in Miami turned to a heavenly ally. They called on the city's Emergency 911 prayer group for divine intervention.
That group was activated at 8:35 a.m., when city officials learned that the town faced a good chance of being hit by a severe thunderstorm -- and possibly worse -- Monday night.
Importantly, it's not selfish prayer:
"We don't pray for it to hit anybody else," said Glenna Longan, Miami's emergency management coordinator. "We just want it to dissipate so nobody is hurt.
How's it working?
Miami has not been hit by a severe storm since the group's inception.
Shown here is a random prayer group. They may or may not be praying for the weather.
