SCITUATE, Mass., Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A Lutheran church in Scituate, Mass., is offering a drive-through prayer service in an attempt to connect with busy residents, the pastor said.

Christ Lutheran Church began the trial basis Saturday and the program will last until at least the end of next week, The Boston Globe said.

"We get their names right away and ask, 'What type of a prayer do you need today?' " Diane Waterfield, one of the 15 parishioners who volunteered to pray with the drivers and their passengers, said. "It's not like in church, when we can pray for our children, our families, our kids, the dog, the cat, and you can go on and on if you want to. Out here, you're working quick."

Eighteen cars stopped at the church for the service Saturday, Pastor Dan Eddy said.

Some prayed for ill family members and others for a safe drive.

One visitor prayed for the Patriots to win Sunday, the Globe said.
