Texas Governor Calls On Prayer Warriors To Stop Wildfires

04.22.11 | Sarah Harnisch

    Prayer is the latest weapon in the fight against Texas wildfires.  Texas Governor Rick Perry is proclaiming today through Sunday as "Days of Prayer for Rain" in his state.  Perry wants Texans of all faiths to ask for divine intervention to stop the blazes that have torched more than one-point-eight-million acres and destroyed nearly 400 homes. His actual proclamation reads "throughout our history, both as a state and as individuals, Texans have been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer; it seems right and fitting that the people of Texas should join together in prayer to humbly seek an end to this devastating drought and these dangerous wildfires."
