Put PRAYER Back In Schools!

Messages 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!

Prayer brings people together..Along with the values taught and upheld by the school system, prayer lays a foundation for those principles. Prayer can help guide students to make the right decisions, and better choices throughout the school year....Whether you practice Islam, Buddhism, or Christianity, it makes students more aware of faiths that they would now be exposed to and taught....Being exposed to other religions, tears down the stereotypes of people that follow a certain faith and the culture tied to it. Prayer in schools can be an opportunity for students, teachers, principals, and other school officials to promote religious tolerance and acceptance.....Although there are certain legal restrictions for praying in school (ex: mandated school prayer, display of religion by a teacher or other school official), there are still opportunities to pray. Students can pray in school – in student-organized religious clubs, in the classroom, before taking a test, on the bus, at a game, etc. The goal with school prayer is to ensure that all religions are equally represented and respected.

America was much better when we had prayer in our schools. Also I think they should be taught in their home to have respect for others and strive to always do the right thing.

WHY ARE WE DEPRIVING OUR CHILDREN THE BLESSINGS OF GOD. I'M SURE WE HAVE ALL NOTICED THE DECLINE IN MANY OF OUR CHILDREN LIVES EACH DAY IN A WORLD WITHOUT GOD'S LOVE AND GRACES. ANY MAN WHO THINKS HE CAN PROTECT OUR CHILDREN IN THE SCHOOLS THEY ATTEND BY MAKING RULES THAT GO AGAINST THE LOVE OF GOD IS NO MAN AT ALL, HE IS A FOOL LEAD BY EVIL. WE MUST BRING GOD'S LOVE AND GRACES BACK INTO THE LIVES OF OUR CHILDREN BY ALLOWING GOD TO ATTEND SCHOOL ONCE AGAIN WITH THEM. OUR COUNTRY NEED GOOD UPSTANDING CHILDREN TO LOVE GOD FIRST AND GOD'S BLESSINGS WILL BE UPON THEM, THEIR FAMILIES AND OUR COUNTRY.

Children with no respect, drugs taking over our youth. God said ask and you shall receive. It's time we go back to asking. Please put prayer back in our schools.

Our children need to know what it is to know God. God is LOVE and in a world where people are led to unimaginable things I believe teaching iur children to unite as One and pray together. I believe we mustvteach unity and what it is to Love the God from with in and to be able to share what it truly is to "Love they Neighbor ". The story of Jesus teaches these ideals and methods of how we walk through fires but yet still remain untouched and unharmed. There once a nation based upon these ideas and our country was much more diverse and unified. Please for the Love of God :)
