This week our country observed its 63rd National Day of Prayer. Congress declared in 1952 that the first Thursday in May should be a day of national communication with God. As expected the “Freedom From Religion” bunch regularly challenges the constitutionality of a federal recognition of the Creator…but they have not succeeded in closing our national hearts.
Evangelicals lead the way again this year, and were the most outspoken at Prayer events around the country. Dr. James Dobson’s remarks have had the most reaction, as he dared to directly implicate the President of the United States as an “abortion president!” Harsh words, but who can criticize the Dr.? After what he recently went through, fighting and winning a court case against his ministry, that tried to force abortion coverage for employees.
Prayer is a universal phenomenon. Everyone prays at some point. You’ve heard that “there are no atheists in fox holes.” Scripture declares that everyone “knows” there is a God, and that He must eventually be acknowledged.
So then, Oremos!…let’s all pray! We need it!
“For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” (Romans 1:19-20/ESV)
