Why we should put prayer and the 10 commandments back in schools!!!!! The legal parameters and guidelines for prayer in school have been very clearly defined, but the question, "should prayer be allowed in school?" keeps coming up. What keeps this issue hot is the concern that we Christians have that the current legal code restricts the freedom they have had in the past to openly practice their faith. When a tragic accident or a sudden disaster occurs, it is normal for many people to turn together to God in prayer for comfort and help. Psalm 50:15 says, "Call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me."This freedom is offered to people in many government and public settings, so it should also be allowed to young people while they are at school!!
I believe that prayer and The Ten Commandments should be in all schools, public buildings, Government Offices, at ball games and all public gatherings. If prayer were said more our country would not be in the shape it's in now children up to adults would have more respect for others and themselves. Our Country was born on Religious Freedom and we are destroying this because one or two people are offended. I pray to God for our Government Officials every day that they make the right choices.
