Yesterday, Governor Sonny Perdue asked a crowd of 250 Georgians outside the Capitol to "pray up a storm."
The state and the region badly need rain. I don't know what was in the prayers of those 250 people. But today in Atlanta, it's 71 degrees and fair. Sunny and 70 degrees in Savannah.
What does this say about public prayer? At the very least, that governors, as powerful as they may feel, aren't as powerful as they think. And that mixing politics and prayer is a dicey business.
Ten day forecast? No more than a 40 percent chance of rain. For the majority of those days, the chance of rain is 10 percent.
