Spamming God

Mel Gibson wants us to "hammer God with prayers and hammer him hard." (Source).  All this to keep Terry Schiavo alive.  Now, I have many thoughts on the Schiavo case, but that’s for another day. 

My point here is that I don’t think we should be "hammering God" with prayers, the way Viagra companies hammer me with ads for penis assistance . . . or the way consumer advocacy groups target their Congressman. 

I just don’t think He works that way.  I don’t think He responds to massively organized pleas, and prayer spams.  In fact, He might find the act of being "hammered" rather annoying.
