Prayer (...in process)

Public prayer has always been an integral part of American life. Of course when we do pray publicly we need to know the One to whom we are praying.

We're not one nation under gods, we believe in monotheism, that there's only one God. He happens to be the one upon whom which we were founded, the God of Israel. The problem with public prayer to this God is that He calls everyone to accountability because by His very nature, He is altogether Perfect.

There is a massive multinational effort to silence us in the Christian community.

Be warned, it's not simply an effort in persuading us to be more respectful of our neighbors (as they propose), it's to rid themselves of Christianity, (being the chief impediment to the social changes they are attempting to make".

They say that our beliefs are fine as long as we keep it to ourselves.

However, I'm a firm believer in hope and am grateful to our President for his courage and commitment in making sure that everyone knows where he stands with his faith. Make no bones about it, he's a christian (his wife I'm not so sure about) and he's left us a tremendous legacy.

Iíll leave you with this. Some years ago, I was struck by something that he said (George W.) at the end of a speech he gave at a National Day of Prayer convention in Washington headed up by Shirley Dobson.


To pray for someone else is an act of generosity. We set our own cares aside and look to strengthen another. Prayer teaches humility. We find that the plan of the Creator is sometimes very different from our own. Yet, we learn to depend on His loving will, bowing to purposes we don't always understand. Prayer can lead to a grateful heart, turning our minds to all the gifts of life and to the great works of God.

Prayer can also contribute to the life of our nation. America is a strong nation, in part because we know the limits of human strength. All strength must be guided by wisdom and justice and humility. We pray that God will grant us that wisdom, that sense of justice and that humility in our current challenges, and in the years ahead.

I thank you all for helping to keep prayer an integral part of our national life. May God bless each one of you, and may God continue to bless the United States of America. (Applause.)
George W Bush

You referenced "this president." So I will assume you are speaking of President Bush, a man I admire with all my heart--a man I believe in. How can anyone not believe in this man? He stands for christianity, though he knows many people do not. President Bush demonstrates the strength of God shining through in the very midst of his trials and tribulations. He has mentioned that he fears most that something will happen to his wife and daughters. But he moves forward, with courage--courage that he credits God for giving him. Thank you for this reminder.
