Georgia Church Group Will Pray For Lower Gas Prices (WATCH)

On Saturday, the Beacon of Light Christian Center in Dublin, Georgia will host a group prayer in an effort to bring down quickly-rising gas prices, according to local news station WMAZ.

This is the third time, the station reports, that the congregation has organized to pray for lower prices. Church pastor Marshall Mabry hopes the event will become a monthly tradition.

Gas prices in Dublin, Georgia currently sit at $3.65 per gallon. That's still roughly 3 cents lower than the most recently-collected national average. Mabry hopes his prayer will drop prices by $1.50. But "if it doesn't drop down to nothing but ten cents," he says. "I'm happy with that."

"This is not a black issue or a white issue," he told WMAZ. "This is a green issue."
