The latest attempt by the country’s largest atheist group, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, to banish reliance on God in America, is coming in the form of a lawsuit against President George W. Bush, among others, for their propagation of the National Day of Prayer.  The intercessory day developed from America’s first official call to prayer in 1775 by the Continental Congress which included such members as: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin.

Subsequently President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation for a day of “humiliation, fasting, and prayer” in 1863; followed by a joint resolution by Congress in 1952, signed by President Truman; to the law amended and signed in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan, which permanently set an annual National Day of Prayer on the first Thursday in May. Apparently the atheist group maintains that the day of prayer creates a “hostile environment for nonbelievers, who are made to feel as if they are political outsiders.”

Although this lawsuit may seem quite frivolous at best to many, news like this does warrant committing it to prayer, and action as the case may necessitate. After all, if we are in the midst of what many call “the last days,” this country will need all the prayer she can get.
