Perry Invites Governors to Prayer Meeting

Monday, 06 Jun 2011 06:08 PM

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has invited the nation's governors to join him in a prayer day to seek God's guidance to deal with the problems facing America.

The day for prayer and fasting is planned for Aug. 6 in Houston. Perry urged governors in other states to also proclaim Aug. 6 a day to pray for "unity and righteousness."

Perry's statement says the event in Houston is hosted by the American Family Association and is intended to be a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian prayer service.

The governor is a strong advocate of the Christian conservative wing of the Republican party. He was also an early adopter of tea party rhetoric.

In recent weeks, Perry has said he would consider a run for the presidency.
