For those who can’t find time in the day for prayer but still want to cling to religious activity, an online company offers outsourcing for your prayer life. The website, www. informationAgePrayer. com allows subscribers to leave the praying to their company’s computers. For a fee of $3.95 per month, the computer uses text to speech software to recite the Lord’s Prayer every day.
