    Governor Plans Service to Pray for Rain
    ATLANTA 07 – 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.Perdue’s office has sent out invitations to
    leaders from several faiths for the service, set for Tuesday.Perdue has
    several times mentioned the need for prayer – along with water
    conservation – as the state’s drought crisis has worsened. Over the
    summer, he participated in day of prayer for agriculture at a gathering
    of the Georgia Farm Bureau in Macon, Ga.

    Perdue, a Baptist, has
    enjoyed strong support from Georgia’s Christian conservatives.The
    Southeast has been suffering from an intense drought in recent months
    that has threatened supplies of drinking water. Georgia has been locked
    in a battle with Alabama and Florida over how much water should be sent
    downstream from the state’s dwindling reservoirs.Governors from the
    three states reached a temporary agreement after meeting with Bush
    administration officials in Washington.The prayer service will be held
    outside the state Capitol on Tuesday. Unless, of course, it rains.”Then
    we’ll move it inside, thankfully,” Brantley said.
