In response to the editorial “A day of prayer might just do us some good” (July 21), let me say that this is not just any day of prayer and fasting. This is a request by Texas Gov. Rick Perry for Bible-believing Christians to come together in spirit on Aug. 6 to pray to God — the only one who can intervene in what is happening to this country.
The U.S. is falling, and rather quickly, at that. Christians cannot just smile and look away. Christians need to say, “Enough,” and turn to whom we trust more than anything or anyone in this country — Jesus.
I am certainly not one to push religion on anyone; however, I also believe that now is the time to pray as one.
The editor questions Perry’s motives as to why he is calling on this day. This may be hard to fathom but I believe that God knows exactly all the motives behind actions.
I say, pray, pray, pray. God knows exactly what to do and how to do it.
