Many of us were deeply touched to hear you recite a portion of Psalm 23 in your address to this great nation in the dark hours following the terrorists attacks. We were encouraged and comforted to know that we truly have a believer working with us and for us in our nation\'s highest office.
We the people of America are requesting that you lift the prohibition of prayer in schools.
As the pledge of our great country states, we are to be \"One nation, under God.\" Please allow the prayers and petitions of our children in schools without the threat of punishment.
Currently, adults and children in the schools are prohibited from mentioning God unless of course His name is uttered as part of a curse or profanity.
Madeline Murray O\'Hare is dead. Let her legacy of atheism in our schools die with her!

Mark 10:13-14 \"People were bringing little children to Jesus to
have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this,
he was indignant. He said to them, \"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.\"
