Texas Gov. Rick Perry staged a massive prayer rally over the weekend, part of an event called The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis. Though the revival was led by a politician, it avoided overt political statements and drew thousands to Houston’s Reliant Stadium.
After some earlier speculation that he would participate in the event, Gov. Rick Scott issued a proclamation (.pdf) encouraging “all citizens to pray” on Saturday, and submitted a video message:
Join me in praying for job opportunities for those who need work, for the economic well-being of our nation, and for the safety and security of our communities and our men and women in uniform.
On a personal note, my wife and I are praying for our first grandchild, who is on the way in a few months.
