Put PRAYER Back In Schools!

6,167 Letters Sent So Far

As our students start each day with the Pledge of Allegiance to the American Flag, we should also start each day with a quick word of PRAYER!

As a country, we are moving farther and farther away from the principles and values in which this great country was founded and established upon.

It is in GOD we trust! What better way to recognize that than to communicate with God and express our appreciate and petition continued Mercy, Strength and Direction.

It just makes sense to pray and intercede daily on behalf of those in authority; our President and his council/ staff, every elected official, our Armed Forces/ Military, Schools and Educators, Health and Safety Personnel (Police, Fire, EMT, etc) and our Worldwide Family.

We must remember what has made us such a strong country... it started with PRAYER!

Blessed is the nation whose god is the Lord!
Hi,I'm a student and it's a honor to sign my name to this petition to put prayer back in school!;).Thank you for you time!;)
To whom it may concern:
A person without a prayer life is lost and unhappy. Children need prayer which can provide coping skills and comfort against depression and bullying which are so prevalent in schools today because prayer is no longer in them. Prayer gives hope and trust that God will move in one's life and make everything better. Prayer in my own life has helped me attain a career despite a bleak and impossible situation. I prayed hard and worked hard and had faith in God to help me and He did! My relationship with God the Father is the most important thing in my life. When I don't pray because I am too busy or tired, the next day I am depressed and feel lost. I need God in my life everyday and so does everybody else. Jesus is the answer!
We, as a country, have fallen away from the Grace of God. Is this unexpected??? No. Out leaders have banished prayer from our schools and Christianity from our lives. From removing the Ten Commandments, separating Church and State and removal of any vestiges of Christianity from our Schools and public display (Nativity Scenes), have forced our nation farther and farther away from the protection of God. I remember growing up and the class saying a prayer before going to lunch and saying a prayer before football games. We cater to Islam and to Atheists, while denying Christians every right except to go to Church. We are banned from saying, "Merry Christmas", not just in school but in some businesses as well. It is now "Happy Holidays" or the Holiday Season. God had become an afterthought to many Americans and even, it seems, most of our own leaders. If you are a Christian, by the very nature you are conservative. Actors and Actresses in Hollywood, who are Christians, therefore being conservative, are almost non-existent and the ones who are, have trouble gaining employment. Stacy Dash, a pretty, black actress, stated verbally that she was backing Mitt Romney during this past election and was verbally BASHED by people on the internet as well as the actor Samuel L. Jackson. His reasonings were more that she was not supporting another Black Person and was berated. Being Liberal in thinking and beliefs has become a disease in America and anyone who speaks different, with Christian morals, is called a bigot, racist, hate-mongeror, back-woods, a Redneck...etc. The list of names is too large to write down. While we, as Christians, are taught to love God with all our hearts and minds, we are also taught to love our neighbor as ourselves. That doesn't mean we have to like or accept their choices and it is our duty as Christians to spread the words and teachings of Jesus Christ. We are taught to repent for our sins, but how can you call yourself a Christian yet support abortion? How can a Christian support a homosexual relationship? We still love the person, but not their actions. Also, we are aware that everyone sins, even Christians. The BIG difference is that a Christian repents for their sins with a remorseful and humble heart and asks Jesus for forgiveness, with the intention to not commit that same sin again. You can not cut and paste the Bible and you can't change it to fit the world you live in. Times may change but the teachings and values of the Bible don't. They are still as applicable today as they were 2000 years ago. We need to get back to where we were and that starts with bringing Christ back into the schools, streets, government and lives of every American. Only then can we begin to bring out country back on the path of God; back on the path our Forefathers set us upon. We have to start somewhere, why not in the schools, with the children, the innocent ones? Otherwise, we will continue down the dark road we currently travel.

We have to remember that God is not sleep and that praising his name is what built this country.
