LUBBOCK, TX-- What started as a neighborhood project for two grandmothers has turned into a campaign across West Texas. But Skeet Workman and Lucy Eade are not promoting candidates; they're promoting prayer.
"We are very concerned the way America is going," said Workman.
The two self-proclaimed "grannies," designed, purchased and distributed 1500 'Pray America' signs throughout Lubbock and surrounding counties.
"They've gone like hotcakes!" Workman said.
Scripture from 2 Chronicles 7:14 is on the front of the sign which reads:
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land."
The women hope the signs will encourage people to get on their knees and pray for not only rain, but for our country and leaders in Washington.
"We're turning away from the Godly ideas that our forefathers stood for," Workman said. "The breakdown of the traditional family is a great concern."
Workman said prayer does make a difference, a difference she hopes will begin with these signs.
"If we pray He will hear us and He will answer," said Workman. "There's something about driving down the street and seeing a sign to remind you to pray and you'll pray."
