Lawmakers in the nation's capital may be wringing their hands about record high gasoline prices. Others are putting their hands together — praying for help from a higher authority. Volunteers from a Washington, D.C., church soup kitchen launch a movement called Pray at the Pump.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

Lawmakers in the nation's capital may be wringing their hands about record high gas prices. Others are folding theirs, asking for help from a higher authority. Volunteers from a Washington, D.C. church have launched a movement called Pray at the Pump. As the group's leader put it, if prayer could bring down the walls of Jericho, surely it could bring down gas prices - though honking a horn loudly might also help him hear.

It's MORNING EDITION.
