Louisiana Oil Spill Day Of Prayer: State Lawmakers Propose Religious Solution To Stop BP Oil Spill ⇢
At the urging of District 36 State Senator Robert Adley (R-Benton), the Senate unanimously agreed to declare Sunday, June 20, 2010 as a Statewide Day of Prayer. Senate Resolution 145 recognizes the day of prayer for Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico region, particularly those affected by the environmental and economic disaster resulting from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil leak.
"All of us are well aware of the problems we have faced across the Gulf Region since the tragic explosion and sinking of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig off the coast of Louisiana. Thus far the efforts made by mortals to try to solve the crisis have been to no avail. It is clearly time for a miracle for us," Sen. Adley said.
As the resolution details, “citizens are urged to pray for a solution to this crisis, each according to his or her own faith, to pray for God’s continued guidance and protection and to join in the observance of a day of prayer, seeking God’s blessings upon both our state and nation.” The resolution also calls upon the people of Louisiana to join together to pray for an end to the crisis which is threatening our environment, our culture and our livelihoods.
What the fuck is going on, Louisiana?
