Prayer for rain gathering is set at St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in Oklahoma City

From Staff Reports Published: September 14, 2013

The Oklahoma Conference of Churches, the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma's Whole Creation Community and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts are calling for a statewide day of prayer on Wednesday.

A prayer gathering is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday at St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral, 127 NW 7.

Organizers said they are encouraging Oklahomans to focus on water conservation and stewardship and to remember people who are still experiencing drought conditions.

Clay Pope, executive director of the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts, said local churches and other faith groups are encouraged to join in the prayer gathering on Wednesday and also to partner with their local conservation districts to plan events in their communities.

The Rev. William Tabbernee, executive director of the Oklahoma Conference of Churches, said the rain that has fallen in central and eastern Oklahoma should serve as a reminder that water is a blessing that must be protected, even in times of abundance. The partnering organizations began their prayer for rain initiative in April.
