President Obama is dealing a blow to the radical agenda that is National Prayer Day–and the Christian militants are not happy. The Washington Times reports “Obama to be prayer day no-show“.
Robert Gibbs, Obama’s press secretary, says that the current president is merely going back to the pre-Bush days. According to Gibbs, the president will pray in private, like he does every day.
What is the National Day of Prayer?
If you look it up, you’ll find the National Day of Prayer Task Force. Their job is to get Christianity–excuse me, Judeo-Christian beliefs–back in the government. The National Day of Prayer, despite the official position, is not doctrine-inclusive.
Who We Are and What We Do
The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation.
What if you aren’t Christian or Jewish?
The National Day of Prayer Task Force was a creation of the National Prayer Committee for the expressed purpose of organizing and promoting prayer observances conforming to a Judeo-Christian system of values.
The National Day of Prayer Task Force’s mission is to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, mobilizing the Christian community to intercede for America and its leadership in the seven centers of power: Government, Military, Media, Business, Education, Church and Family.
Our Vision and Values
In accordance with Biblical truth, the National Day of Prayer Task Force seeks to:
- Foster unity within the Christian Church
