This Saturday Governor Rick Perry has called the nation to a day of prayer.

Several Abilene churches want to make sure they are in Houston to join the effort.

Governor Rick Perry has asked the nation to join together for a day of prayer, asking everyone to pray for America.

While there has been some criticism over the event, a group of Abilene churches decided they needed to be a part of something this large, believing that change can be made through prayer.

"The Response," as it's being called, is this Saturday at Reliant Stadium in Houston and is being held from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the evening.

Some churches, including New Hope Church, are holding a watch party and prayer time for those who will not be able to attend.
