I just received this from my brother and I gotta tell ya, THIS is the way to handle the "wall of separation". I'm gonna see if we have something like this in Texas.
"On Sunday—January 31, 2010 the day before ’s 2010 legislative session begins, the sixth annual Legislative Prayer Gathering will be held at the State Capitol.
The event will be held on the floor of both the house and senate chambers from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. Participants will be offered the opportunity to actually sit in the chair of their state representative and/or senator and pray for that office holder (and others) for one hour.
The objective is to have each of the 101 seats in the house chambers as well as each of the 48 seats in the senate chambers occupied with citizens in prayer. To fulfill this goal, at least 149 participants are needed. Any participants beyond the 149 will fill a seat upstairs in either the house or senate gallery.
Participants are encouraged to park on the west side of the capitol and enter the west side of the building through the doors under the green awning. Guides will be present to provide direction.
This event is sponsored by Rep. Mike Reynolds, Sen. Jim Reynolds, Prayer Force One, Bott Radio Network, the Oklahoma Family Policy Council, www.PrayerMetro.com, Barnabas Ministries Inc., Reclaim Oklahoma for Christ, and Oklahoma Conservative PAC."
