    It is sundown, and around the world, Jews turn to their Rabbi and pray, Muslims turn to their East and pray and Financial Professionals in NYC turn to their monitors and pray.

    Dear God,

    If you let the Dow close above 7000 again I promise I will take back every bad thing I have said about you. I know that it has been a lot recently, but you have got to understand that I have been under the constant fear that I could lose my job, like most of the other people here on Wall Street.

    Our Father, Who art in heaven
    forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us;
    and lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.
    Please make this plan work for our economy
