A deity-curious atheist, I find myself inside a church for reasons far too complicated to explain.

Bored, and avoiding the crush for the magic wafers, I take a mooch around and find a pile of leaflets entitled "This Week's Prayer Points".

Now, I've never been much of a religious person, but it came as a bit of a bolt out of the blue to learn that knee-benders need a leaflet to tell them who they should be praying to on any given day.

This week's theme: Pray for the media.

Red rag. Bull.

"Monday: Pray about the influence of 'new media' and that blogs and other internet communications will be used responsibly".

Let's test that one out, shall we?

Nope. Pray harder.
