BP's latest attempt to plug the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is holding up so far, but sadly, damage has already been done for many coastal cities and residents.
Because of that, churches across the country will gather to pray for the Gulf, Sunday July 18. Learn more about the day of prayer for the Gulf Coast here.
The national day of prayer was put together by the National Association of Evangelicals and the Evangelical Environmental Network.
Galen Carey, director of government affairs for the NAE, spoke with CBN News about the event and how people will be participating.
