I attended a small country public elementary school and each day was started with prayer and Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag... the teachers would read us Bible Stories from time to time. Each day was started with hope. I always felt protected and loved because of the way the day started. I pray that other children will be given this same feeling of hope , love and protection in their school. America we have to make a stand. Fight to have prayer in schools. I know it will make a difference!

Ron what I am saying is that our schools should have the opportunites for our students to pray in school. It

I honestly do think that we do need separation of church and state. I am a total liberal and I do believe in God. I think that it should only be optional for our students. Please do remember that President Obama is a Christian. I am also a Christian. I go to an Episcopalian Church. They are a liberal church they are also for liberal issues.

Because some children do not beleive why should those who do believe have to pay the price. The only time some children hear the word GOD mentioned is at school because our country has sided with the non believers. When did pray have anything to do with "seperation of church and state?'

We need this so that we can bring social justice back into our schools. I also think that this could be a great thing to help President Obama. Please do believe me when I say that President Obama is a Christian man and a compassionate man. OBAMA/BIDEN 2012

I had prayers when I was in school and pledge to the flag every day.Some don't even know how to say the pledge let along know how to pray, I would love to see the President salute the Flag, In all pictures when the soldiers pass by him getting off the planes returning from Iraq His hands are by his knees, It discuss me.

The first thing a child should learn is how to pray and that they can do so at any time and anywhere.It is a GOD given right.

Its important to teach your children about religion and encourage them to have prayer and so forth as part of they're lives. Prayer is a powerful thing. I def support having sierra surrounded by religion, whether its church, prayer, bible, etc.

Prayer in schools is ESSENTIAL in order to revive morals in students and get them back onto the right track..

I think religion is very important in our lives especially in our childrens, you teach a child the right way to go they never forget. What is wrong with doing prayer in schools, starting each morning with a prayer, At least they heard. and put two and two together and connect two God. And hearing and thinging God. Otherwise some of our children probably do not even hear a prayer anywhere, not even in their homes. Just think, you could have influenced a student something about "GOD."

The children are this country's future. We can clearly see that our country is headed downward. With prayer in the schools, God will lift this country back up to where it used to be! God listens to our every prayer!
