Pray for God to bless our schools


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times While prayer — along with displays of the Ten Commandments; The Bible and the reading of its contents; and, increasingly, any reference to Christmas and Easter, let alone any depictions of the true meaning of those seasons; and, for that matter, any other reference, particularly positive ones, to Christianity — is no longer permitted in our schools our schools still need our prayers. They need our prayers because when all is said and done education cannot be divorced from morality and all true morality comes from God. American society seems to have forgotten this to a great degree and this country is suffering because of it. True, God-centered morals can and should and hopefully still are taught in our churches and, equally hopefully, in our homes, but children are not always at church or at home. They spend a good part of their weekdays during the school year at school and during that time the lessons of a God-centered morality should be reinforced, not ignored or, worse yet, disdained. Our schools need our prayers, just as our nation and its constituent communities and institutions do. So pray for them each and every day and pray that God will continue to bless them as in times past even if we as a society, as a nation, have forgotten that strong nations, that strong societies are moral ones and that all true morality and all true strength comes from God.
