Prayer, to go

Motorists roll down their windows to catch a breeze, pay tolls and buy cappuccinos. In Tustin, Calif., drivers do it for prayer. Main Place Christian Fellowship Church turned a photo kiosk into a drive-through prayer booth.

"[T]here are people out there really hurting," Martin Mosier, pastor, told The Tustin News. "If they know someone will pray with them, they will come. We're just here to help the community."

Drivers ask for everything from relief from depression to successful job interviews, reports the Los Angeles Times. Tamiko, a homeless woman who prayed for a home, told the Times: "This is like a fast-food place for God."
