A city in Louisiana is going to offer drive-thru prayers for commuters as part of the holy day of Good Friday.

For the third year in a row, Louisiana Avenue United Methodist Church of Lafayette prays commuters who drive to their house this Friday.

Louisiana Avenue UMC Senior Pastor Robert E. Johnson, Sr. told The Christian Post that the purpose of the drive-thru prayers is to reach the unchurched.

“We started offering drive thru prayers, because there is a low percent of people who go to church in the Lafayette area. Our church is located next to a busy road,” said Johnson.

“So those people and their whole families come to the drive-thru for prayer gives us an opportunity to be Christ to someone.”

More than 100 drivers showed last year, Johnson explained, and the goal is to have that number doubled by the further promotion of the event.

“We started advertising early and scheduled interviews on local television and radio stations to discuss with our event this year,” said Johnson.
