Oh, Lord! The prayer is back...

Dateline: Fri 16 Jan 2009

on Page A2. And so far, it's free.

Here's what the mealy-mouthed editor had to say on Page 1 (Interestingly, I don't see this on the web version...):

"Earlier this month we eliminated the prayer that had been published daily in The Indianapolis Star for more than 40 years. We realized that, philosophically, prayer was not the function of a newspaper. Our role is to be the voice of news and information for Central Indiana.

Thosands of calls, emails and letters to the editor later, we have been reminded of, and are thankful for, another important role: to be a vital part of our readers' lives. As our religion writer Robert King put it, 'You don't get much more important than being a part of the grace said over breakfast.' The daily prayer returns today on Page A2.

"Thank you for letting us be part of your life."

And for reading the prayer daily....ha.
