Muslim, Jewish and Christian clergy say everyone in Boston is the snow together.

Muslim, Christian and reform Jewish clergy have put together a YouTube video, a prayer so to speak, to ask God to deliver Boston from more snow.

“The winter from hell” has brought Boston within inches of a 20-year old record of 107.60 inches of snow. The white winter has disrupted commercial and personal life in the city, and several members of the clergy got together to produce a light-hearted video and rely on prayer to for God to send relief to the city.

Thirteen members of the clergy from mosques, churches and Reform temples appear in the video below, which carries a message of “We are in this together.”

“Boston, are you weary?” asks Rev. Jay Williams of Union United Methodist Church.

“Weary of digging out?” says Rev. Burns Stanfield of the Fourth Presbyterian Church in South Boston.

The video features a verse from Jeremiah 29:7: “Seek the welfare of the city.”

Looking on the good side of things, the multi-faith clergy call on Bostoners to help each other and smile while thinking of those poor southerner who “don’t have the luxury of snow days.” “Can I get an Amen?” asks Rev. June Cooper of the City Mission Society of Boston.

While the men and women of the cloth are having fun with a video, someone else has found a novel way to get rid of the snow and make money. Kyle Waring is selling 10 pounds of snow for only $89, including shipping.

“I put the snow in a plastic bag, and put that in tinfoil,” he told Boston.com. “Then I put that package in an insulated container that’s an inch and a half thick, and ship it overnight. It’s sealed tight in Omaha steaks packaging.”

  1. They are so blind. If they are truly suffering, then the true G-d may be trying to send them a message. Maybe instead of making fun of praying to whoever they're praying to, they should repent of their false beliefs and start doing right. For one thing, the Jews must leave Egypt and get home to Israel. The true G-d says He'll send hunters to force the Jews to leave their otherwise cushy exile. Maybe they should read more of Jeremiah, who also says in verse 16:16 "Behold, I am going to send for many fishermen," declares the LORD, "and they will fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks. " This is in context of bringing Jews home to Israel from the final exile. It's so weird that people can read right through the warnings and obvious call to return home and zero in on a verse taken out of context. Blind men loving the materialism of exile.

  2. what makes you think they don't? Isn't that being judgemental and being part of a group which puts others down. Do you believe in the power of prayer? Did it stop the holocaust. Does it stop terrorism. If God responds to prayer He is very selective what prayer he listens to.

  3. Senator Warren from Massachusetts who lied and said she was Cherokee to get in to Harvard as a minority also is a big proponent of global warming. Maybe this message of big snow is directed toward her and the fools that elected this Socialist are reaping the harvest!
