    A Christian policing group which believes that the power of prayer can catch criminals and keep officers safe from harm has been awarded a £10,000 grant from the Home Office to widen its involvement with local church groups.

    The Christian Police Association (CPA) wants members of the public to "adopt a cop" by praying for the safety of local officers as they ply their beats. Subjects that the association says congregations should be encouraged to pray for include "helping officers make on-the-spot decisions" and encouraging them to "resist corruption".
    £10,000 to pray, they should monitor the results

    Also, if this worked wouldn't God be taking away part of our free will and changing his uniquely perfect plan :rolleyes:

    Also, it looks like we are only funding Christian police.

    I would have the Home Office knew better than this.

    This is ridiculous. What was the Home Office thinking?

    If the Christian Police want to help prevent crime by praying and encouraging others to do the same, then fair enough, that's up to them. But I don't see why they need £10,000 for that. Praying is free, isn't it?
