As you may remember, less than a month ago
Obama met with Rev. Billy Graham for prayer.
It seems to be trickling down.

N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue has been trying a lot of things to try to get
North Carolina's economy back on track, and now she is turning to prayer.

Perdue and her husband, Bob Eaves, met last week with the Rev. Billy Graham
at his home at Montreat, Rob Christensen reports.

The First Couple and Graham prayed for North Carolina's recovery, and
Graham prayed that Perdue would receive guidance to lead the state during
these turbulent times, according to the governor's office.

I applaud Gov. Perdue for her actions in this case as it is
the right thing to do. We all need divine guidance from
time to time

Now, I'm pretty sure we're gonna hear from the other side
of the argument that their needs to be a separation between
church and state and also from the Athiest following.

But remember, this was a private meeting and no religion
was forced on your kids or you. You were not required
to pray or participate, yet they were praying for us. I feel
blessed already

I may not agree with everything Gov. Perdue does in office,
but this has got to be one of the highest on my approved

If the governor of North Carolina believes that prayer will help her state's economy get back on track, more power to her.

The problem lies in what she might be doing otherwise. If she could be spending her time working out a solution to the economy or brainstorming new ideas, then those things must take precendence over prayer. I will not say anything bad about prayer, religion is all your choice and frankly, I couldn't care less what it is. But if your state is in trouble, it is the duty of the Governor to do everything in her power to set things right.

If the governor has the day off of work, then she could pray all she wants, but while she's supposed to be running the state, she should be , well, running the state.

No, we don't.

And, though I appreciate the gesture, I'd rather they put that wasted time and energy into policy and procedure - of the secular type.

The governor has probably the most amount of power and influence over commerce and the economy in the state.... and the answer to the economic problem is prayer?!

This governor is a genuine nincompoop. How about enacting some positive economic incentives instead? That will actually achieve a result.

just as expected, the nay-sayers
rush in on cue, lol

I'll say a prayer for you too

Doing the prayer thing is one thing.. but this is making Billy look a prayer guru.. like you have to go to Billy for God to hear your prayers.

I strongly disagree with that image. This is nothing more than a public show for the masses. True Christians know if they are righteous their prayers to God are heard without any help from Billy.

And Billy allows this kind of thing and he claimeds to be a True christian.. I believe now more than ever Billy is all for show and he's about the money.

A true christian would not let these things be publicized. It is not biblicaly sound.

Thanks for saying a prayer for "the nay-sayers".

I was thinking, when I get to work Monday morning I'm just going to pray that the work gets done by divine intervention instead of actually doing it. I'll report back on the results. After all, this is the way politics apparently works in the Carolinas.
