Praying for Rain? 10 Nov 2007

Posted by Jessa in Religion.

Well, that’s what the governor of Georgia is going to do:

ATLANTA (AP) — 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.

So it’s come to this now? What will they try when it doesn’t work? Oh, I forgot – if it rains at any point in the future, it will be deemed an answered prayer. Or they could try a good old Native American rain dance. Actually, that would be fun to watch.

This is very interesting…I’ve been thinking about this a lot as we in the Southeast have been gripped in this drought. In previous generations, for the history of this planet, natural disasters have been recognized as a “wake up call” from God to help us to get back on track when we have perhaps been blind to ways that we have rebelled from him. Is it possible that this is the explanation for the great increase in natural disasters we see here in the US?

I think it is a very good and wise thing that the governor is doing…perhaps many others should follow his lead, even if it is considered unpopular.
