Praying for a Cubs Victory, Chicago Style

Will you take a moment today to pray for the Sikhs and Muslims? They need your help, and its really important that their prayers are heard. Many, if not most, religious Protestants, Catholics, and Jews may be squeamish about praying for local sports teams, seeming to depend more on talk of luck and billy goats than Divine Providence. Luckily, in ethnically diverse Chicago the Muslims and Sikhs are not so shy. They are taking a positive approach, entreating The Almighty for victory for the Cubs. In Palatine, the Sikhs have beeing praying for the Cubs since yesterday, and one hundred Muslims have been called to pray for victory this afternoon at Wrigley Field. ABC's Channel 7 has the story.

I went up to take photos of people praying outside of Wrigley Saturday afternnon (1:30 PM) and I must ahve missed the prayers. They needed more prayers, a lot more prayers.

Yeah, I saw them on TV and only a few showed up. Bummer. Should we be promoting an interfaith day of prayer early next year for the Cubs and not wait until the last minute? How great would that be? Since "interfaith" events have kind of disappeared from the religious map, it might not only help, it also would increase religious tolerance, always a good thing.
