NDP & Congressional Prayer Caucus Members Increase

National Day of Prayer:  Since the court decision on April 15, the Congressional Prayer Caucus has done several things in support of the National Day of Prayer.  Thank you for all you and your organizations have done on this issue and in support of the Caucus.  On April 22, the Department of Justice announced that it will appeal the decision (order attached).   The case will now be appealed to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals later this fall.

Resolutions:

Rep. Smith’s resolution, H.Res.1273, affirms the constitutionality and historical significance of the National Day of Prayer.

Rep. Tiahrt’s resolution, H.Res. 1279, calls for an appeal of the ruling against the National Day of Prayer and express the support of the House of Representatives for the institution of an annual National Day of Prayer.

Cong. Forbes’ Interview on CNN’s ‘Faces of Faith’:

Congressman Forbes discussed the ruling which held that the statute establishing the National Day of Prayer violates the Establishment Clause.  He was joined by Annie Laurie Gaylor, Co-Founder and Co-President of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the organization that brought this lawsuit.  You can watch the interview here:

    ” And JABEZ called on the God of Israel saying, Oh, that YOU WOULD BLESS ME INDEED, and ENLARGE MY TERRITORY, that YOUR HAND WOULD BE WITH ME, and THAT YOU WOULD KEEP ME FROM EVIL, that I may not cause pain.”
    So God granted him what he requested.
