Can I Get Fries With That? Florida Church Offers Drive-Thru Prayer Service

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — At a new drive-thru service in South Florida, it’s not hamburgers, car washes or coffee on the menu.

The Christian Life Center wants to pray for you.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Pentecostal congregation has been offering drive-thru prayer services every Friday for the last month.

Outreach Pastor Sol Levy says many who pass through have never been inside a church and are often at the end of their rope. The volunteers offer to pray with them on any issue, big or small, from a rough day at work to divorce and foreclosure.

“I’m delighted to be doing it,” volunteer Elijah Gabriel told the Sun-Sentinel. “Anything you do for God creates a kind of joy in your heart.”

Church leaders say the initiative is starting to gain popularity and has served about 150 people so far.

“I don’t always get a chance to go to church anymore,” Susan Lee told the Sun-Sentinel. “This isn’t everything I need, but it’s a good pick-me-up.”
