Gov. Perry Declares Days of Prayer for Rain in Texas
AUSTIN Gov. Rick Perry has proclaimed the three-day period from Friday,
April 22, to Sunday, April 24, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of
Texas, following extreme drought conditions that have sparked dangerous
wildfires across the state, which have taken lives, engulfed more than 1.8
million acres and destroyed nearly 400 homes.
≥Throughout our history, both as a state and as individuals, Texans have
been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer,≤ Gov. Perry said.
≥It is fitting that Texans should join together in prayer to humbly seek an
end to this ongoing drought and these devastating wildfires, and for the
safety of the brave firefighters and emergency management officials who have
worked tirelessly to protect lives and property around the state.≤
Gov. Perry urges Texans of all faiths and religious traditions to offer
prayer for the healing of the land, rebuilding of communities and the
restoration of our normal and robust way of life in Texas.
