(Scroll down for video) In today’s fast pace and high tech world, going to a synagogue, church or mosque, might be a challenge and time consuming for some people.

German artist Oliver Sturm, came up with a solution. He created the "Pray-O-Mat." Pray-O-Mat is an old photo booth that was converted into a prayer booth with computerized screens. Sturm pre-recorded 300 blessings in 65 languages for all religions.

So how does a Pray-O-Mat machine work? Users step into the booth and scroll through the menu on the touch-screen to find the religion they want. Then, they make the selection of the prayer they want.

What is the price for the service? It is totally free, with an optional slot to donate money.

The first English “Pray-O-Mat” was installed at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom, as part of learning about different faiths.
