A woman named Cindy Jacobs over at The 700 Club declared October 29, 2008 as Day of Prayer for the World’s Economies. October 29 was the 79th anniversary of the Black Tuesday crash that was the symbolic beginning of The Great Depression. As the CBN article writes:

In January of this year, Cindy Jacobs was in a worship service when the Lord spoke to her, “Cindy, the strongman over America doesn’t live in Washington, DC – the strongman lives in New York City! Call My people to pray for the economy.”

This word so shook Cindy; she knew she had to call the people of God to converge on New York City the week of October 29 for an emergency prayer rally to cry out against economic collapse in the midst of shaking.

The Lord further said, “October 29 was Black Tuesday, the day the stock market crashed, and Satan wants to do it again.” We must be proactive in prayer. At the beginning of the year many intercessors began to hear from the Lord that without divine intervention, a major shaking was coming to Wall Street. This would spread until there were food shortages. Some think that 2009 would be worse than 2008. Of course, it goes without saying that this would affect markets around the world.

Bad theology aside... and given the fact that our nation needs prayer mightily... this really is a bad symbol. Praying before a golden bull -- even if not praying TO the golden bull sounds bad -- and looks even worse.

Wow, I don't even know what to say. I guess they would have prayed against Elijah who prayed for it not to rain until the people repented. Elijah was not interested in the peoples 401k or stocks. No rain in an ranching or farming society would be devestating. Far worse than we are experiencing.
When are we going to desire to serve God and not be comfortable.
