Just one day after Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue hosted a multi-faith prayer service asking God to send rain over the drought-stricken Southeast, a quarter inch of rain fell over the state.
The governor believes it is heaven’s answer to the citizens’ prayers, reported the Atlanta Journal Constution.
“This is hopefully the beginning of more. One rain won't refill the reservoirs,” Purdue said Thursday. “It is great affirmation of what we asked for.”
On Tuesday the govennor stood outside the state capitol and prayed for God to send the rain to the area.
The Baptist governor has often publicly mentioned the need for prayer during this dry season. “As we do all we can from a conservation standpoint, virtually all of us know we are dependent on rain,” he told the Journal.
“I am just a person who believes it comes from God.”
