Rain Request Gets Escalated at HPPC

Back in April, if you’ll recall, Rick Perry made a three-day Prayer For Rain proclamation.

Friday, state agriculture commissioner Todd Staples – featured yesterday on KERA – took the prayer slant on his blog:

Let’s pray for rain and remain optimistic during these tough times. As I keep telling myself, another day without rain brings us closer to one with rain.

And last night, Highland Park Presbyterian held a special service, asking  for divine intervention to end the drought. Per the church’s website:

Come believing that as God’s people pray, God’s hand moves. Come expectant. And come with an umbrella.

Do you have a rain dance of your own in store?

    I’m sorry, but this is absolutely ridiculous.

    I love it! It is raining all around Dallas. Hope we get some here but if not I know God still answered the prayers of His people.

    @momof4,

    I guess God doesn’t love UP/HP as much as he does the other areas around Dallas.

    Hmmm. I say we sacrifice a virgin. Or Merritt. 😉
    Is this what we have become? Paganists that do rain dances?
    God gave us a perfect world and we’ve been screwing it up since.
    I made a totem pole tonight and I’m going to dance my arse off for gold nuggets and candy canes.
    Yea Sunday Christians!!! You make me giggle.
