Over the weekend, Texas Governor Rick Perry invited other governors to join him in August for a “solemn gathering of prayer and fasting” for the future of America:

“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.”

The event he is referring to is called:  “The Response, a Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis.”

Here’s part of what Gov. Perry has to say said on the event’s website:

“Right now, America is in crisis. We have been besieged by financial debt, terrorism, and a multitude of natural disasters. As a nation, we must come together, and call upon Jesus to guide us…”

Response: It is refreshing to see a governor pick up the gauntlet and seek God for the answers to the many questions facing America. We agree with Gov. Rick it really is time to pray for the future of America.

Last week economic experts were all addressing concerns that America was now probably facing a double-dip recession or even a depression rather than the recovery that everyone had expected to happen this Summer.

In times past, our leaders would call the nation to prayer when it was such a time as this. Even President Franklin D. Roosevelt called upon the nation to respond in prayer and seek God numerous times during his presidency and he was not known to be all that ‘religious’.            *Top
