'Massive heat wave' on way; Okla. tries prayer - Weather - msnbc.com
In the thick of the heat wave is Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin asked Oklahomans to pray for rain this Sunday.
"The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release on Thursday.
Fallin on Thursday also issued a ban on outdoor burning for the western half of the state because of the extreme drought conditions.
Prayer does not work, never has, never will. There is ZERO scientific evidence. it only give people that warm fuzzy feeling.
