Georgia On My Mind: What if prayer works?

Georgia’s Governor Sonny Perdue bowed his head outside the Capitol and led hundreds praying for rain to end the area’s drought. With bibles and crucifixes, many linked arms and swayed with a choir singing hymns. Perdue appeared to be acknowledging that the water shortage was both natural and because of a human disregard for conservation. "Oh father, we acknowledge our wastefulness,”, the governor, a Baptist, prayed, “but we're doing better.” His choice to wear a green suit may have been a statement about his commitment to “think green”.

If I believed in the power of prayer, I, too, would pray (forgive me, Georgians, it’s neither personal nor vindictive) that Georgia get rain, lots of it, just not in time for it to be connected to prayer. My reasons, however shabby and selfish:

Those pea green suits will be all the rage;

It will encourage women to keep praying for him to leave his wife;

We could end up with another fundamentalist president;

The price of Gospel brunches will go up;

Members of The Writers Guild will turn from picketing to praying, “Please, God, we’ll give up bottled water for a fair share of the profits".
