Gov. Perry Will Be In Houston For National Day of Prayer

The National Day of  Prayer was recently ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge, but that’s not stopping  people across the country, including here in Houston,  from taking part in the 59th observation of the day. 

At noon today,  Governor Perry will join the Houston Area Pastor Council for prayer and to take a stand for religious freedom, according to the news release sent to 2 On The Beat.

Meanwhile, President Obama has announced that the Justice Department  plans to appeal the federal judge’s ruling.

The President issued proclamation saying that , “Prayer has been a sustaining way for many Americans of diverse faiths to express their most cherished beliefs, and thus we have long deemed it fitting and proper to publicly recognize the importance of prayer on this day across the Nation.”
