Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue Plans Service to Pray for Rain

Uh-oh! The atheists are not going to like this at all! But I think it's a great idea. I've been praying for them ever since I read of the drought becoming so serve.

What to do when the rain won't come? If you're Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, you pray.

The governor will host a prayer service next week to ask for relief from the drought gripping the Southeast.

"The only solution is rain, and the only place we get that is from a higher power," Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley said on Wednesday.

Perdue's office has sent out invitations to leaders from several faiths for the service, set for Tuesday.

Perdue has several times mentioned the need for prayer - along with water conservation - as the state's drought crisis has worsened. Over the summer, he participated in day of prayer for agriculture at a gathering of the Georgia Farm Bureau in Macon, Ga.


The prayer service will be held outside the state Capitol on Tuesday. Unless, of course, it rains.
