45 Year Anniversary

On June 25, 1962 the following 22-word prayer was removed from the public school system.

“Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence on Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country.”

I pray that once again a new generation of young people will usher prayer back into their schools. What if students all over the nation began to pray a new 22-word prayer in unity? A prayer of repentance, humility and longing.

“Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation. God, end abortion and send revival to America.”

Hopefully we can go back to the first one, it seems more like "preventive medicine". Our current prayer is more of an emergency "HELP!" type prayer.
