The Orthodox Church Info blog reports today (June 15, 2011) that a Romanian company has developed a novel solution: For a fee, believers can now submit their prayers online to priests who will read the prayers out during church services.
The service costs $1.44 per day or $34 online per month.
While Romanian Orthodox Christians -- used to writing down their prayers in church -- are pleased at the added convenience of praying remotely, the Romanian Orthodox Church is less impressed. It cautions that praying online -- instead of attending church services -- could lead to laziness.
What do YOU think about this "modern-day" prayer idea? Readers of this blog would like to read your comments on it...
