Hmm.  I am all for prayer but does anybody else think it is a little unusual for at least four Baptist ministers to come to a home as early in the morning as 8:00  a.m. for prayer? Remember the old song, If Jesus Came to Your House?  It could be a little unnerving.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOM1okyHx6E

Maybe this sheds a little light on it:  http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2007/05/thought_it_migh.html This list is not in alphabetical order, but all four of these pastors are on it.
