NOT defending anyone, just once more pointing out the hypocrisy of the left.
This should amply supply your need:
"Anita Perry became tearful while recounting how her family sought spiritual guidance in the run-up the Texas governor’s announced candidacy. She said Rick was reticent to run because he hadn’t seen a direct sign from God.
“God was already speaking to me, but (Rick) didn’t want to hear it,” she said. “I said listen, you may not see the burning bush, but there are people seeing that burning bush for you. So he really took it to heart, he prayed about it.”
<<<Here’s candidate Rick Perry’s wife, Anita, reflecting on her husband being “called by God” to run for the presidency:
<<<"She likened Perry's decision to run to encountering a 'burning bush,' a reference to the Biblical story of Moses receiving a sign from God. And Anita Perry suggested that her jhusband's current difficulties were 'a test.'
Last week, someone came up to Rick and gave him scripture. He said, 'Rick, I want to tell you God is testing you.'">>>>
Go to minute 5:32 and following of this video. If you seek vapidity and boredom, watch the entirety of her blithering, rambling, pitiful whining.
I have no objections to prayer. What I do object to is anyone's contention that he/she has received a personal sign or message directly from God. From such claims proceed all kinds of deception, charlatanry, and chicanery!
