    Default prayer-in-a-bottle

    Context : A woman is drinking a beer. She shows the bottle and says to her friend :

    "Don't be so jumpy. Sometimes this right here is called prayer in a bottle, that's why they call it spirits. Right now we're gonna have a toast."

    She has already said "God made beer".

    Is she quoting the Holy Bible ?

    No, she's not quoting any sort of Scripture. Homer Simpson once asked, "Beer. Is there anything it can't do?" The quote you mentioned is along the same line. The woman speaking is just marveling at how beer can temporarily solve her problems.
