I was just sitting here, checking out the recent posts when I found the “Now I Sit Me Down In School” prayer under the “religion” tag. The timing of the piece is awesome (set to the children’s prayer Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep) because students (regardless of the grade) and their parents are starting their “back to school” preparations. It also ties in very nicely with the whole reason for my blog – PRAYER!!!
I know many of you have read the poem at one time or another, but do me a favor and link from your blog / site to the poem and if you are a non-blogger copy and paste the poem into your email and send it out encouraging others to do the same. There is power in prayer, and when 2 or more come together in His name, His power is unleashed!!!
The movement to remove prayer from schools did not gain it’s momentum until Madalyn Murray O’Hair, an aethist mother from Maryland decided she was going to “save” her son from having to participate in school prayer (and making lots of money in the process didn’t hurt either) as well as advance the public awareness of her new founded organization American Aethists. The irony is that this same son, William J. Murray III is now a major voice to return prayer to schools.
HOW GOOD, AWESOME, WORTHY, POWERFUL, HOLY, WONDERFUL AND LOVING IS GOD!!! He will be given all the Glory!!!
