FYI:
This isn't political ... every president from Truman to Bush W. attended the National Day of Prayer.
Kennedy...Johnson ...Carter .... Clinton attended every year.

Eisenhower ... Nixon ... Ford .... Reagan .... Bush .... Bush attended every year.

Hello twin.spin,

I believe God cares very much. You can see around us what happens to a nation, or world, when you remove God from the focus of government stability, as Israel was a great example for all of us. It becomes divided and corrupt. God bless you.

That's not the point!

What the OP is pointing out is the hypocrisy....allowing for a day of prayer for Muslims, but not one for Christians! Are you saying that since this country was evidently not founded on Christianity, we should therefore throw Christianity out, suppress it wherever it is found, and start endorsing Islam? That a day of prayer for Muslims only should be endorced by the President? (it obviously was)

thank you.
I'm not referring to said poster who posted this,as I realize he probably got it in an email and is just passing it on...but those right-wingers have proved they will stop at nothing to try and prevent the democrats from being in office.They'll use the name of God and downright LIES to try and get what they want! it's ppl like THAT,that cause me to vote democratically,which I have NO intention of ever changing.I would vote for the lib party bf I would vote for the repubs.NO, I will NEVER vote republican...NOT happening in my book!

and that's the end of that

JerimiahJohnson, thanks.

We know that prayer is our strongest weapon and that prayer of one righteous person makes a huge difference....and there are plenty of righteous who are earnestly in prayer for the concerns over this.

Still, there are plenty of indications that things could certianly give us Christians [that have any insight to God's Word] that we can very easily "reap what we sow".

God bless.
