Put PRAYER Back In Schools!

6,655 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!

Students and teachers should have the option of reciting a prayer at some point during the school day. It does not have to be mandatory for all students, but nonetheless an option. So many parents decide to homeschool because they are in fear of the troubles their children may face if they even utter anything religious in schools. When my son was 5 years old in kindergarten, the teacher's aide told me he could not mention God in school or face suspension. Really? A five year old cannot express himself in a positive light yet when I was in high school students were allowed to walk around cursing? Something is not right with this picture.
Prayer and religion for that matter teach so much more than just God. It teaches respect, commitment and faith. That faith can be in anything even yourself. You don't have to join in the prayer. But listening and being respectful will do so much to teach our children valuable life lessons that could benefit us all.
The first amendment in our original constitution does not say anything about separation of church and state. This was taken out of context. The first amendment protects freedom of religion. We have the freedom to bring prayer back to public schools.
Without God who would any of us be? What would happen to us when we die? I'll tell you we would be buried 6ft under and rot! Because of God each of us has a choice in where we spend eternity. I have much more to say about this than I have room to express...This country was built on God.
This I can't believe has been allowed to happen, a nation that has been based on religious freedom, predominantly Christianity faith and why we came here, as honor to those that fought and died for that right! Now their deaths are all in vain!
Americans have been very accommodating to those in need, even deal with American federal buildings that has Spanish language over American! How much must we bend to accommodate selfish prideful foreigners!
I was crushed under @6000 lbs, I fought to escape until my arm stop working!
I thank him for my blessing, I said I was ready! He gave me legs and made me walk, after the truck slipped on top of me again! I am different now and can't help as before, I am told that there are plans for me! Well, a nation with out faith, is a godless nation, never have I voted for that!
prayer should never been taken out of or school. we all need a little prayer. god bless us all.
