NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, 7 MAY 2009

On 6 May 1982, Ronald Reagan offered these words: "Today, prayer is still a powerful force in America, and our faith in God is a mighty source of strength. Our Pledge of Allegiance states that we are 'one nation under God,' and our currency bears the motto, 'In God We Trust.' The morality and values such faith implies are deeply embedded in our national character. Our country embraces those principles by design, and we abandon them at our peril. Yet in recent years, well-meaning Americans in the name of freedom have taken freedom away. For the sake of religious tolerance, they've forbidden religious practice in the classrooms. The law of this land has effectively removed prayer from our classrooms. How can we hope to retain our freedom through the generations if we fail to teach our young that our liberty springs from an abiding faith in our Creator?"

History of the National Day of Prayer

1775 The First Continental Congress called for a National Day of Prayer.

1863 Abraham Lincoln called for such a day.

1952 Congress established NDP as an annual event by a joint resolution, signed into law by President Truman.

1988 The law was amended and signed by President Reagan, to be the first Thursday in May.

Cool! Just don't put a Cross in a school or your in deep Doo Doo!

Some Kids wanted to start a Bible Study Club during their Lunch Hours and it was Quashed!
