As I told you off line, you don't (or didn't) have a
data/virtual-mailman file. You need to be sure (fx_url) that your list
is in the lists.mytimewithgod.net domain and that your mm_cfg.py has

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['lists.mytimewithgod.net']

and then run bin/genaliases to create data/virtual_mailman and
data/virtual_mailman.db. If you've done that and you have the virtual
mappings for the mtwg-prayer list in data/virtual_mailman, then the
problem is that you need to add the full pathname of virtual_mailman
to virtual_alias_maps in main.cf.
