Prayer rallies set for Saturday at LSU and Southern

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Saturday, prayer will take over the two college campuses in Baton Rouge as hundreds are expected to be at LSU for the Global Prayer Rally.

One is called "The Response" put on by the American Family Association with Gov. Bobby Jindal delivering the keynote speech. And while prayers are lifter up inside the Peter Maravich Center protestors say they will be sending their own message on the outside. One group that will be there is The Capital City Alliance.

"They have views that are so dismissive to many of the governor's constituents including the LGBT community, single mothers, and minorities," said board member Dave Samuels.

Over on the at Southern University there will also be a rally for "The Soul of Louisiana" in the Mini-Dome. Pastor Thernon Jackson said it's all about growing spiritually and solving a troubling problem.

"We live in a state where the reality is that we are in a bad situation and people being elected hadn't always been the answer," said Jackson. "But we do believe that people who are liked-minded and come up with some answers."

Prayer rallies for both Southern and LSU start at 10 a.m.
