    This song by Joni Mitchell came out in the 1980's but is still so relevant today. Please say a word for the misery afflicting this area.

    how about instead of praying we do... i don't know... something physical, like donate food or supplies. i get what you're saying, but let's look at it from their perspective: i'm sure prayers are exactly what they want from us icon_rolleyes.gif

    it's very easy to pray, but very hard to do something about it.

    We've been praying for the entire African continent since 1984. Apparently, God has been busy...killing abortionists, flying airliners into skyscrapers and whatnot.

    Here's an idea: why don't we pray for getting our own country's shit together BEFORE we start humping the winds of sub-Saharan Africa?
