East Texans pray for state and country

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - East Texans joined in a day of prayer as Governor Rick Perry held a service in Houston. The event was simulcast at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler.

With a troubled economy, grueling heat and a massive drought, East Texans took a knee.

"Many times we look at prayer as the last option when really it should be the first," said Buddy Holland of Green Acres Baptist Church.

Terry Cox spent the day both praying and fasting. He says the event helps cleanse the soul.

"A lot of the scriptures were just how, ensuring that you do not have any unresolved sin in your life," said Cox.

Over 200 hundred people attended the prayer event.
