Long Distance Praying !

The prayer supplications that fill the air in Israel's holy sites are coming not just from those standing at the Western wall,the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth and other shrines but from worshippers thousands of miles away.
A unique Prayer Delivery Service enables one to send recorded audio and video prayers across to the Holy Land. Send your prayer for Health, matchmaking and livelihood-directly to holy sites in Israel- claims this unique Israeli startup called POIP(Pray Over Internet Protocol)
The company sells phone cards that let customers record personal prayers in any language, which are then transmitted in their own voice to the site of their choice (there are at present eight Jewish and Christian holy sites selected by the site)via embedded webcams and Internet phone speakers. Visitors to POIP's site can also watch live video streams of the various sites reports The Wall Street Journal.
Got to hand it to the Israelis who come up with novel ways of making money.As long as there are suckers who go in for such things, the world is full of such proselytisers.
