“Therefore let everyone who is faithful pray to You at a time that You may be found. When great floodwaters come, they will not reach him.” Psalm 32:8

When I was a child we started every day in elementary school with the Pledge of Allegiance, a Bible verse and a prayer for the day. I think this was after the ruling that removed prayer from public schools, but that didn’t bother us much in Belton back in the 1970s. Those days are past and prayers are not often practiced in our public schools. I hear people bemoaning the demise of prayer in school. They say, “Everything has gone downhill since prayer was removed from schools. We need to get prayer back into our schools.”
