Community call to prayer Thursday

May 2, 2012

Prayers will be sent from the third floor of the Howard County Courthouse on Thursday.

A community call to prayer has been organized for 12:10 p.m.

“We don't need our pastors to organize this,” Justice of the Peace Kathryn Wiseman said. “This needs to come from the people.”

The scripture being used in support of the call to prayer is 2 Chronicles 7:13-15; “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

Praying will be the only thing taking place during this gathering. Several community leaders will be on hand leading prayers with time alloted for individuals who wish to add their own prayers.

“We will be praying for rain during this call to prayer. We desperately need it,” Wiseman said.

“We are a Christian nation. We need to rise up and show God that we are a Christian nation.”

Wiseman also noted that those attending the Day of Prayer observance may want to take the opportunity to cast an early ballot in the May 12 school board, council and 4B project elections. If so, they should bring identification. Voting will be taking place on the third floor as well.

No need to show your religion to the god, because god does not believe in a religion.

First things first. This IS NOT a Christian nation. Secondly, if any city funds or resources were used in the promotion, hiring of speakers, or anything else related to this event then it clearly violates the First Amendment.

You must be a product of public schooling, or some sort of mental deficient. America is not a christian nation ?!!! Who, exactly, would you say they were refering to when they said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Praytell who they meant by Creator ? B.Hussein Obama, perhaps ? I will pray for your soul, even though you must not believe that you have one.
