Two Southwest Governors ask their citizens to pray

In the summer of 2011, Oklahoma Republican Gov. Mary Fallin asked her constituents to set time aside to pray for an end to the drought that’s gripped her state for months. “I think if we have a lot of people praying, it moves the heart of God,” Fallin said. Oklahomans were encouraged to pray for rain to put a stop to wildfires and help out the state’s farmers and ranchers.

Meanwhile in Texas, Governor Rick Perry also asked his constituents to pray. He wasn’t asking for rain though. Governor Perry was asking citizens to come together at Reliant Stadium on August 6th for a solemn day of prayer and fasting on behalf of our troubled nation.
