The Governor of Georgia Prays for Rain

by Dr. D ~ November 14th, 2007

On Georgia’s capitol steps, Governor Sonny Perdue led a crowd of several hundred people in a prayer for rain. With a choir singing “What a Mighty God We Serve” and “Amazing Grace” as a backdrop, the Governor began:

“Oh father, we acknowledge our wastefulness, but we’re doing better…”

More than 20 protesters were on hand to register their disagreements with the Governors actions.

Comments: 50 years ago, what the governor did today would not have even been reported outside of his state. Events like this were common place. During WWII, President Roosevelt led the entire nation in prayer on several occasions, can you image the outcry if Pres. Bush did something similar.

This really does point out the vast changes that have taken place in the American landscape and culture. I remember as a child beginning every school day with a prayer and a Bible verse. I can remember when PTA meetings always use to begin with prayer. My how the times have changed!

Some view this as progress, but I see it as indicative of moral and spiritual decline. Public prayer is now seen as quaint and maybe even dangerous. Even Christians like myself, question the motives of the Governor for his public display of faith.

Those of us who long for the ‘good ol’ days’ when public prayer, Christmas displays, and crosses on a hill were as normal in America as Chevrolet and apple pie, are now dismissed as dangerous proponents of some kind of Christian theocracy. Which is ridiculous since no one really wants that.

The America that became great and was built upon the foundation of Judaic-Christian faith no longer seems to exist, and I fear for the future. This is my prayer:

“Our Father, Bring revival to this nation once more, in Jesus name, Amen.”
