Texas' Perry urges other governors to join him at prayer event
Saying "there is hope for America, and we will find it on our knees," Texas Governor Rick Perry has invited other governors to join him in a "solemn gathering of prayer and fasting" in August in Houston, according to the event's website.
Perry, who said recently he is considering a run for the Republican nomination to contest the presidency in 2012 against Barack Obama, has frequently made calls for prayer while governor.
"I sincerely hope you'll join me in Houston on August 6th and take your place in Reliant Stadium with praying people asking for God's forgiveness, wisdom and provision," Perry wrote in materials promoting the event, called "The Response, a Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis."...
This governor doesn't know the purpose of Prayer. If he doesn't want people to think he just considers religion a tool to get elected, as Bumbling Bush did in his bid for the Presidency he should realize the only proper prayer he might wish to in a public setting is, A Call to Pray for the Salvation of All.
