Last week we got an envelope in the mail from some church we had never heard of. Inside the envelope was the “prayer rug” (actually, just a folded piece of paper) pictured here, with some creepy text at the bottom. I mean, come on. He opens his eyes and looks at you? This could give someone nightmares. Look at that picture — the eyes do look open. And they probably follow you around the room, too.
Enclosed with the “prayer rug” was a letter on which we are supposed to put a checkmark next to our prayer needs. And contribute a healthy chunk of money to this “church,” of course.
Honestly, this makes me angry, the way this preys on people’s desperation.
