Wake-Up Christians!

1 Timothy 2:1-3 "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour." We are to pray for those in authority, not leave it to the preacher on Sunday morning.

Christians still need to have a say in what our government does. We must continue to vote and be aware of legislation. I know it is overwhelming and mostly frustrating because we sometimes don't get the vote we want. I know....I live in California and I'm always frustrated with legislation. California is always trying to be the FIRST to pass a legislation that usually is not morally correct. BUT with the help of two great organizations who spend hours upon hours keeping up and sending us into action, we can do our part.

Scroll down below and you can see the two organizations I speak of. www.frc.org and www.savecalifornia.com . If you are not local, you will need to find a local organization who helps you locate legislation for your state!

National Day of Prayer - 58th Anniversary

The National Day of Prayer occurred in spite of a court ruling that declared it unconstitutional.

On April 15, 2010 Judge Barbara Crabb, a federal judge in Madison, Wisconsin, issued a ruling declaring the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional. She wrote: "In this instance, the government has taken sides ona matter that must be left to individual conscience."

In response, the National Day of Prayer Task Force (NDPTF), whose mission is to "publicize and preserve America's Christian heritage," launched a "Save the National Day of Prayer" campaign. "This is an attack upon our religious freedoms, and it is a sad day in America when an atheist in Wisconsin can undermine this tradition for millions of otehrs who simply wish to join their fellow citizens in praying for their country, " the petition read.

Just hours after Crabb's decision, the White House announced that President Obama intended to recognize a National Day of Prayer, as he idd the previous year.

Congress declared a National Day of Prayer in 1952, and in 1988 it fixed the event's observance to the first Thursday in May. On this day, the President traditionally issues a proclamation urging people to "turn to God in prayer and meditation, " although not all have done so.
