God Listens To Sonny

Yesterday Sonny prayed for rain.

Gov. Sonny Perdue and Georgia farm officials joined in prayer Monday morning with hopes that rain would soon fall upon the parched state.

Last night a rain storm swept through Middle Georgia watering my flowers.

There can be only one conclusion — God listens to Sonny. Earl and Eric better watch out 😉


  1. Holly says:

    Either that or Sonny Sonny’s staff watches the Weather Channel. But you know, whichever tickles your fancy. . .

  2. Federalist says:

    You know rain dances always worked for the native americans…because they danced until it rained.

  3. Samuel says:


    If Guv. Sunshine was so well connected…..how do you explain all his other screw-ups!!!

  4. Demonbeck says:

    “Can he pray for lower gas prices now, since he has a direct line to the big guy upstairs?”

    This has nothing to do with Mark Taylor.

  5. Federalist says:

    Sorry patriot…but it is my belief that water evaporated, the accumualted in mass quantities high the atmosphere where it cooled down and crystalized. Then after saturation…these water molecules precipitated back down to earth. You know, the first few parts of the hydrologic cycle. Or is that just “junk science,”…lets ask bill greene.

  6. Demonbeck says:

    You would think that if global warming were indeed happening that the increased heat would result in a higher rate of evaporation on our seas – thereby creating increased cloud coverage and lower temperatures and MORE rain.

    But that would make too much sense.

  7. Demonbeck says:

    So we should be concerned about global raining? Is Al Gore doing a sequel?

    Does this mean that the effects (or lack thereof) of global warming is dependent upon which way and how hard the wind is blowing?

  8. TPSoCal says:

    Based on their performance over the past few years, I would say that God is surely a GATOR!

    Go Gators!

  9. Icarus says:

    Must be, because it commands me to be kind to the less fortunate, like Tech grads, for instance.

  10. jsm says:

    Fed, your dissertation on the hydrologic cycle is good science, but what about the science behind where it happens and the unpredictability of it? The interesting part is how the cycle was designed to work, isn’t it?

  11. God says:

    Bill Simon – clean up your language – I am hearing you and I don’t like what I’m hearing!

  12. Donkey Kong says:

    God is definitely a UGA fan. Our recent losses against UF don’t prove anything. His chosen people wandered in the desert for 40 years–our string of losses against UF is much less than that. Soon, we will rise to dominance and our kingdom forever established.

  13. Bobby Kahn says:

    I hear Sonny is now praying for another 100k tax break. Given his relationship with the General Assembly, divine intervention will be necessary this time.

  14. God says:

    To all – I have much work elsewhere – Rugby fan: one day of rain and you want to know what’s an arc? Get serious!

    Demonbeck – I stoppped listening to Ralph Reed also – a very long time ago.

    Donkey Kong – I am a UGA football fan – except when they play in Jacksonville!


  15. Bill Simon says:

    God Said: God is definitely a UGA fan. Our recent losses against UF don’t prove anything. His chosen people wandered in the desert for 40 years.

    And, that pretty much describes UGA grads…they just “wander” through school until they wander out for a diploma…

  16. God says:

    Bill Simon – I’m may be busy in Athens but I still hear you – do not mis-quote me again! OUT!

  17. Icarus says:

    I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but Bobby Kahn might be on to something.

    If the legislature can pass a retroactive tax break, can they also pass a retroactive tax increase? If so, they might want to keep that one in their hip pocket.

  18. waterboy says:

    I’m sorry that so many of you fail to believe in the power of prayer. The power of prayer is humbling to those that believe.

    The Governor can’t make it rain. The farmers can’t make it rain. But their faith in God and prayers to Him were answered by the one that CAN make it rain…..you guessed it – God. He is the only one that can make such things happen.

  19. bowersville says:

    I don’t know whose prayers were answered, all I know is the skies were opened, and I’ve had rain on this parcel the last 2 days…thanks be to he who is the great I am.

  20. Demonbeck says:


    This thread is not belittling the power of prayer, just the power of one person’s prayer over another person’s. Please don’t get all preachy and let us have our fun.

  21. Demonbeck says:

    I meant to say that one person’s prayer does not take precedent over another person’s prayer. I am sure the Governor would agree.

  22. Demonbeck says:

    They can think what they want, but they would be wrong.

    I am clearly more important to God than they are.

  23. Federalist says:

    Man waterboy, you really know what you are talking about. This was a staged event, they watched the weatherchannel for a few days…and decided which day would be the most opportune. The power or prayer…sheeesh. Rain dances worked to, bud. So does seeding rain clouds.

    excuse the rugby talk, but as a former rugger, I can’t resist…

    “Well we all know Jesus can’t play rugby.”

    But remember even though Saturday is a rugby day, Sunday is a holy day. Is everybody happy….

  25. waterboy says:

    Yep, Federalist – it was a conspiracy. You believe your way and I’ll believe mine. Good luck.

    Demonbeck – If you want to bash prayer and call it “fun” then you are a weak-minded individual. Perhaps you just like taking cheap shots at the Governor….I’m not able to follow such childish logic. I am very thankful we have a leader such as Governor Perdue that openly expresses his faith and follows the Word of God. We should all embrace such a characteristic.

  26. God says:

    Waterboy – If George Ervin Perdue listened to me, he wouldn’t be Governor; he wouldn’t have been a Senator; he would have stayed with the farm animals. George was always at his best when he was alone with the farm animals. I bless you for your continuing faith.

    Federalist – fall on your knees and pray for forgiveness for your blasphemous utterances. Rain dances and cloud seeding work because I let them work in conjunction with prayer.

  27. Federalist says:

    Sorry God, I never thanked you for appearing to Henry Ford in a dream giving him the idea to create the automobile. Nor did I ever thank you for appearing to Thomas Edison in a dream giving him the idea to create the light bulb. The list could go on, God. Oh…how are your plans for the apolcolypse coming along? I hope it works better than that flood idea.

  28. Chris says:

    Wow, God is here!

    Hey God, I’ve always wanted to ask this: where you drunk when you invented the platypus?

  29. Demonbeck says:


    Again, this thread is not belittling the power of prayer, just the idea that one person’s prayer would mean more to God than another person’s prayer. As I said before, I am sure the Governor would agree. If you are not able to follow such childish logic, perhaps it is you who are the weak-minded individual.

    We are not bashing prayer. Nor are we taking cheap shots at the Governor (at least I am not.)

    I too am very thankful we have a leader such as Governor Perdue that openly expresses his faith and follows the Word of God. I agree that we should all embrace such a characteristic.

    Of course, I am very secure in my faith and I am not threatened by people who openly question theirs.

  30. Dear Governor Purdue,

    Can you please pray to God now and ask Him what He wants you to do about the contracting corruption at Robins Air Force Base; and the letter you sent me telling me you couldn’t help me, but yet you take money from the defendants and their lawyers.

    Can you ask God why RAFB holds prayer breakfasts but are involved in bid rigging and favoritism?

    Can you ask God why you don’t have the power to help me and the other small businesses, but yet you have the power to set a program where the defendants chair it?

    If you can pray for land for the farmers then you can pray for the small businesses who are losing their contracts at RAFB and won’t be able to afford to buy farm products.
