ndpCOLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO (April 18, 2013) – How far have we digressed
as a nation? In 1620, William Bradford and the brave men and women of faith aboard the
Mayflower declared America to be “for the glory of God and the advancement of the
Christian faith.” Later, it was President George Washington who said that the twin pillars
essential for supporting a successful society are morality and religion. John Adams, our
second President, declared that “The general principles on which the fathers achieved
independence were… the general principles of Christianity.” Yet today, atheists and antireligion lobbyists are attacking the foundations of our Judeo-Christian society at an
unprecedented scale and Americans have had enough!
John Bornschein, Vice Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force, adds
“Abraham Lincoln, quoting from the biblical passage of Mark 3:24, boldly stated that “a
house (nation) divided against itself cannot stand.” The issues that divided our nation
during the 2012 elections were of greater significance than the prevailing economic
scrutiny. The moral values of the sanctity of human life, preservation of marriage,
defense of Israel and religious freedoms became the focus of attack while many remained
unaware of the new aggressive, socialistic agenda sweeping across the land. But eyes are
being opened and the outcry is significant. The predominate population of Christians in
our nation have been silent long enough and they are taking the issues to God in
mobilized, corporate prayer.”
On Thursday, May 2, 2013, millions will unite in direct opposition to the attacks on
religious freedom. It will be the largest National Day of Prayer on record. Individuals are
being asked to pray, petition and be a voice of reason at such a critical hour in our
nation’s history. To learn more, or to find a National Day of Prayer event in your
