"Oklahoma declared a revenue failure the second year in a row.

%u201COur situation is dire,%u201D Oklahoma finance director Preston Doerflinger said. %u201CTo use a pretty harsh word, our revenues are difficult at best. Maybe they fall into the category of somewhat pathetic.%u201D

Governor Mary Fallin had an answer: prayer. The governor issued an official proclamation making 13 October Oilfield Prayer Day. Christians were to gather in churches and hope for a little divine intervention targeting falling worldwide oil prices. Fallin quickly back-pedalled when it was pointed out that her proclamation only included Christians. %u201CPrayer is good for everyone,%u201D she reasoned.

Prayer Day came and went. The price of oil has barely budged since. Three weeks after Prayer Day, however, the earth shook. A 5.0 magnitude earthquake hit the town of Cushing, a place whose claim to fame is the %u201COil Pipeline Crossroads of the World%u201D.

Maybe God had something to say about Oklahoma after all."
