In light of the sustained draught, Governor Mary Fallin has asked all Oklahomans to set aside time this Sunday, July 17, to pray for rain.

Dry conditions have helped to contribute to over 140 wildfires this year, resulting in the loss of dozens of homes.  The Governor also signed an executive order issuing a burn ban in 45 counties.  Low levels of rain fall, which match rainfall deficit records dating back to the Dust Bowl, have also lead to significant hardships in the agricultural sector. 

Governor Fallin stated ” I encourage Oklahomans of all faiths to join me this Sunday in offering their prayers for rain.”  “For the safety of our firefighters and our communities and the well being of our crops and livestock, this state needs the current draught to come to an end.  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.’

After her remarks, the Secretary of Agriculture said he appreciated the governor’s call for prayer and would be saying his own this Sunday.    He also stated that “Farmers across the state are suffering under these conditions.” 

I am grateful that the Governor has issued this call for prayer.  I hope that no matter where you worship or what faith you believe in that you will set aside time to offer a prayer for rain and that we will get the rain we need soon.
