I wrote you last week to inform you of the ruling by Ms. Barbara Crabb of the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Wisconsin that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional and therefore should not be recognized. Ms. Crabb was nominated to the Court by Jimmy Carter and has been serving since 1979.
This judge is responding to a lawsuit that was filed two years ago by the atheist group, Freedom From Religion also based in Wisconsin, stating that the government should not be involved in any religious action or prayer. Of course, we know that anyone with even a limited knowledge of American History understands the importance of faith to our Nation. The values of faith and freedom for all people was indeed a core belief for the founders of America and this cannot be disputed with integrity.
As I told you last Friday, I am working personally with Mr. Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice as he crafts a legal response to this issue. He and I along with other religious leaders will be doing television and radio programs in the near future about this issue as well.
Here is what you can do:
1) Sign a Petition stating you want the National Day of Prayer continued in the United States. You can do that by clicking on this link to the ACLJ.
2) Pray that Barbara Crabb gains an understanding of the true principles on which our Nation was founded and that she has an encounter with the Lord Jesus.
3) Stand in Faith with us that the atheist group Freedom From Religion is stopped from it’s onslaught toward people of every faith and belief system in America and that it will cease attempting to intimidate lawmakers from standing up for freedom and faith. I am personally believing that their funding will dry up in Jesus’ Name.
Thank you for standing with us as together we make a difference and restore the principles upon which the United States of America was founded.
Blessings to you and remember, JESUS IS LORD!
