Louisiana senators urge prayer for Gulf region

The News Star in Monroe, La., reports:

BATON ROUGE – State senators have declared Sunday a day of prayer for Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico region and especially for the people affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Sen. Robert Adley, R-Benton, author of Senate Resolution 145, urged Louisiana citizens to “pray for a solution to this crisis, each according to his or her own faith.”
“Thus far, the efforts made by mortals to try to solve the crisis have been to no avail,” he said, and the environmental and economic damage mounts each day. “It is clearly time for a miracle for us.”

The Times-Picayune in New Orleans earlier reported on how people of faith are turning to God in the face of the calamity. Scripps Howard News Service columnist Terry Mattingly this week highlighted the Southern Baptist Convention response to the crisis.
A hat tip to my friend John Dobbs, minister of the Forsythe Church of Christ in Monroe, for linking to The News Star story on his Facebook page.
Question for Christian Chronicle readers: Do you know of members or congregations of Churches of Christ touched by the Gulf oil spill crisis? If so, please share details in the comments section. Also, do you plan to heed the request for prayer?
