Just got a phone solicitation from a ministry for

anonymous urgent prayer.  for a donation of course.  do people really do this?  pay a stranger, unseen, over the phone, to pray for them?  wtf? 

 

what a brilliant idea!

Let's get some details on the pitch - sounds good

"i wish i was big"

Old lonely people love prayer, want human interaction, and are more susceptible to being scammed. They weren't targeting you specifically, but just trying to rope in a sucker so they could scam them and milk them dry

I got a call as well about if I needed prayers. Hung up right away, it was late when they called and my kids were sleeping

It was a robocall.  Said if you want someone from our ministry to say a prayer for you press one, if you want to be removed from our list press 3.  I didnt get to the part where they ask for a contribution but can only assume this isnt free.

mihow -

only one Ministry worth your time and money friend

LOL
