Prayer Cross Rip Off / As Seen On TV
Posted by Ok4now on 04/18/2009
PENNSYLVANIA -- We've all seen the TV commercial 100 times, soft music playing, genuine Austrian crystal and a real religious keepsake. On 1/23/09 I ordered two. One for my wife & the second one was a gift. ($40 for the first $20 for the second.) They clearly stated that delivery takes 5 to 6 weeks and my C. C. will not be charged until shipped. I didn't have a problem with this. On 3/3/09 my C. C. was charged for $60 and I received both crosses 3 days later. Arrived in a nice velvet black box with a Certificate of Authenticity. What appeared to look like fine jewerly on T.V. was actually gold plated junk. At this price I knew I wasn't buying 14K gold but the inferior quality looked like it belonged in the Dollar Store. After less than one month the Lord's Prayer (which was very difficult to read) completely disappeared on both crosses. Highly embarrassed because one was a gift. Contacted customer service asking for an exchange not a refund. Very arrogant attitude. I was told that it was my fault because they got wet. Not so. Then I was told that they have a strict 30 day return policy and I was past the limit. They go by the date of order and do not include the 5 week shipping delay.

These people sell a highly advertised inferior product that they won't stand behind and give excuses for returns. Probably purchased from China for next to nothing then they inflate the price to make a killing. Do not do business with these people. You will be sorry!!

I've seen the ad and frankly they look like junk.

I always though it was junk. The commercial shows a little girl looking at the lords prayer on the cross but if you pay attention the little girls eyes they are not looking at the cross but off to the side. The cross isn't all that big, but the prayer looks long. How small is the print on it?

I guess the fraudulant company needs some prayer.
Posted by jktshff1 on 2009-04-18:
Heck, I couldn't read it on the tube, much less in that little cross.

I have one of those. I didn't buy it from this company and I don't know who made it...but I bought it at a flea market for about fifty cents. I've had it for over ten years and it really is very nice. It's not cheap looking. Mine has clear and aquamarine stones in it. It pray inside is surprisingly readable with no problem. I've used Jewelry cleaner on it and it never faded or anything. Sounds like the company you ordered from, is making rip off versions of the better product sold years ago.

What's worse than paying 2 payments of $19.99? Try paying 2 payments of (($29.99))). Yeah, here in Canada, it's an extra $10.00. The Canadian ads are identical, but with with the Canadian price/address graphics. But, the voice-over is the ((American)) version, so we hear "2 payment of $19.99" but see 2 payments of $29.99. It doesn't even match! Speaking of address... it comes form Concord, Ontario. I guess it comes from Pacoima, California (although probably made in China or Hong Kong), but shipped to Concord, Ontario. Concord is where all the cheap dollar store crap (I guess you Americans call the 99 cent stores) comes from. Not surprised. They have the nerve to charge more than $5 is outrageous.

Prayer Cross is a bogus scam, False advertisement, Prayer not correct
Posted by ScooterD on 12/28/2009
We have all seen this Silly Infomercial about the Prayer Cross. First, I have to tell you is read the actual prayer in the Bible, then read the prayer that they are advertising. They do not match! The prayer is not complete, they left out the last sentence in the Prayer. would not buy something that is not from actual Document, Let alone from the Holy Bible. the people who have bought this, must not really know the Bible..

It's silly, but you bought it anyway? Doesn't the commercial show what the prayer is?
Posted by Skye on 2009-12-28:
Our Father, Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name;
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

**They left off, "but deliver us from evil, amen".

Really?? Did you contact them?

Pretty much depends on whose Bible you read, but I can tell you that none of them use the same words that the actual authors used.

I haven't. I tend to steer clear of commercials or infomercials.
Guess it all depends on which bible you're reading it out of... but, guess I can look up the infomercial on youtube or whatever.
Posted by Skye on 2009-12-28:
So true Ken. And there is also a newer version of the prayer:

Our Father, Who is in heaven,
Holy is Your Name;
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those who sin against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

The commercial I saw, wasn't an infomercial. It was a regular, 3 minute in between TV shows commercial. Didn't realize they were infomercialing these crosses.

I don't recall seeing any version of that prayer in my family's bible. I must be missing something.

The Prayer Cross version of the Lord's Prayer is exactly how I've always said it.

Posted by jktshff1 on 2009-12-28:
That last line, "For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever", seems to have been added after 1700. Really depends upon which "version" of the bible you are looking at.

Yea Stew, the New Testament maybe?? LOL
Posted by Starlord on 2009-12-28:
Stew, it is called the Lord's Prayer for a reason, and it is in the Bible. the wording, however is different in various versions of the Bible. People are going to argue about the Bible no matter what you do. Some people follow the King James version, some the Catholic Bible, and on and on ad infinitum. Try reading the book Misquoting Jesus, to find out how the Bible was changed over time and the accuracy of the various versions. No translation today, including the KJV is accurate, it can't be because the originals were lost long ago, and human error and secret agendas corrupted the Bible. Sad, but inevitable.

Skye, I had never heard that version.
Here is a link:

Starlord, I gather from ZZ's link that the Lord's prayer can be found in the gospels of Matthew and Luke which explains why I never saw that prayer in my family's bible because indeed it's not there.

What version do you have, Stewart?
Posted by jktshff1 on 2009-12-28:
According to most Christian, Moslem, Jewish, Catholic..did I leave anyone out?, their particular bible was WRITTEN, with divine inspiration. Then it has been, and still is, translated by whoever wants to. As much that is written on this web site alone gets misunderstood, It's easy to see many different translations of the same thing.

Write it yourself on a piece of paper and keep it in your pocket. Or do you actually think the Prayer Cross has special powers?
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-12-28:
According to the televangelists they do.
