(NBC News) A woman had her purse stolen as she was praying inside a south Florida church - and the ungodly act was all caught on video!

The 84-year-old woman was praying while sitting in the back row of the North Lauderdale church.

A man walked in and scanned the room, before appearing to leave it.

However, as you can see in the security video, the thief returned and took the purse off of the chair and rushed off.

The purse was found at a nearby cemetery two days later. The woman's money, wallet and other valuables were missing.
