A Louisiana church is offering what it calls drive-thru prayers on Good Friday for people who simply drive through the church's property and stop for a quick prayer.

The Louisiana Avenue United Methodist Church in Lafayette is targeting people who don't normally go to church, according to The Christian Post.

"We started offering drive-thru prayers because there is a low percent of people who go to church in the Lafayette area," Senior Pastor Robert E. Johnson, Sr. told the Post. "Our church is located next to a busy highway."

An image on the Post story about the drive-thru prayers, which have been offered the past two years, shows a driver stopped and a pastor leaning through the window offering a prayer. Johnson said more than 100 drivers participated in the event last year.

"We started advertising early and scheduled interviews on local television and radio stations to discuss our event this year," Johnson said. "We used this event to help those who are trying to get a loved one back into church through a short prayer."

Friday's event is scheduled for 8 a.m.-noon, according to local newspaper The Daily Advertiser.
