Today on one of the major television news stations a small note of concern showed up saying, “The National Day of Prayer is now being known as the national day of reason,” what Pray Tell is the national day of reason, originating in 2003?
Apparently, the atheists are at it again through the American Humanist Association and the Secular Coalition of America. These two organizations are trying to erase The National Day of Prayer. They are working to replace the Day of Prayer with a day of reasoning on the first Thursday of every May so that the day can include those who do not believe in prayer.
Common sense tells me, on this special day, every year, everyone in America will finally use common reason. All the other days of the year, the remaining 364 days, is used as no nonsense days, where nothing makes any sense that anyone in the public and government domain does or says.
The justice system seems turned upside down in this present day. Nothing makes any sense that government officials do. Yes, I know that many things that the government has said and done in the past have not made too much sense, but things have gotten and continue to get worse.
This change is apparently just for the atheist Americans who find it impossible to honor this day as a day of prayer and prefer to have the day renamed as the day of reason for those who do not believe in prayer.
Democrat Rep. Pete Stark from California has presented this proclamation for the last two years on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, hoping it will pass this year.
Again, Rep. Stark has apparently said that the United States have too many problems and the way to meet these problems is through the application of reason and not prayer. Christian’s, on the other hand, feel that it takes common sense, and an abundance of reason, to overcome the problems that the United States faces. I am confident that many Christians would agree, in order to attain the highest level of wisdom to make these important decisions for the United States come only through the power of prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
As an example: It is like a passenger on an airplane hoping to get to their destination without a pilot to guide that plane. The pilot has the wisdom and knowledge to make the right decisions to fly the plane. A Christian is not going to go anywhere without God in the pilot’s seat, it would be like flying blind.
Just because, America has one day out of 365 days set aside for the National Day of Prayer, does not mean that those people do not pray the other 364. Prayer is part of the life of many people. Prayer reaps sharpened knowledge and wisdom, beyond what those people normally have.
On the other hand, The National Day of Prayer is given to everyone in America to ban together and pray or do what brings them comfort regardless of his or her religion background.
