Houston based spiritual leader Doug Stringer has taken on the responsibility of getting the seats filled at Reliant Stadium for Governor Rick Perry’s day of prayer and fasting.
The founder of Somebody Cares and Turning Point Ministries International, assured me that the day will
focus on prayer and not politics.
During our interview Thursday, Stringer said he expected thousands of people from around the country to attend, along with a handful of political leaders.
Everyone will have to follow the same rules: no political signs or t-shirts slamming either political party. Elected officials who attend have been warned they can pray, however, they cannot make political speeches.
CNN is reporting that public response to the prayer and fasting rally is lukewarm. As a result, Governor Perry would attend but not speak.
The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 6, at Reliant Park. It is open and free to the public.
