National Day of Prayer on Thursday

National Day of Prayer continues the tradition established by the Continental Congress proclamation in 1775. In 1952, Congress established an annual day of prayer and, in 1988, that law was amended, designating the National Day of Prayer as the first Thursday in May.

In keeping with that tradition and to pray for our nation and its leaders, Second Reformed Church, 1000 Waverly Ave. in Grand Haven, is hosting a prayer service on Thursday evening.

The community is invited to this service. It begins at 7 p.m.

The theme is “One nation under God,” inspired by Psalm 33:12 — "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."

I would like to respectfully ask for your support of House Bill 4769 because if anyone today goes into court they will no longer hear what was once common just a few years ago and was acceptable by the majority of Americans. The swearing in "Under God" oath to tell the whole truth, so help me God. But because of the powers of certain groups and/or individuals it was removed, now just how fair do we go, do we replace the Bible with the Koran? Those who are uncertain or with level heads should check out the laws of Shariah or even investigate the Koran, talk about free rights or free speech. Sorry just one more little serious concern, as for "our" National Day of Prayer I will personally support and invite our Muslim brothers and sisters to participate in Lansing or where ever and pray with us, when there birth country in the Middle East allows and permits those of other beliefs or faiths. Such as Christians and Jews to worship without the fear of being murdered or rated less then that of a third rate citizen because of there faith. Are we on a slippery slope here, just food for thought so that's it for now, go for it and oh ya, God Bless our Constitution.
