Governors of Texas, La. declare Sunday a day of prayer over Gulf of Mexico oil spill

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The governors of Louisiana and Texas say Sunday will be a day to pray about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal issued a proclamation declaring a day of prayer for perseverance in coping with the environmental crisis caused by the spill.

In Texas, Gov. Rick Perry is urging Texans to pray for the healing of individuals, the rebuilding of communities and the restoration of entire Gulf coast environment.

Experts say the current worst-case estimate of what's spewing into the Gulf is about 2.5 million gallons a day from the blown well, polluting shorelines from Louisiana to Florida.
