Is prayer now an official policy option for Gov. Mary Fallin?
We ask the question because Fallin today asked Oklahomans to set aside some time on Sunday to pray for rain. She explained that much of the state is suffering through a drought and prayer just might be the answer.
"The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain,” Fallin said in a press release.
Hey, if prayer can bring rain, why not use prayer to solve other public problems in the Sooner state? Gov. Fallin can fix darn near everything if we all do our part on Sunday.
Who needs tax revenues or actual state policy or plans when the solution is just a big group prayer away. Failing schools? No problem—let's all pray! Crumbling bridges? More prayer, please. Overcrowded prisons? Ditto!
This is such a simple and amazing way to solve the state's problems that we probably don't need to have Mary Fallin as governor. Maybe we should all pray for that.
