By: David Worrell Re: School Prayer Model school prayer Silver Spring, Maryland - School prayer advocates might like the following model. Although it's based loosely on the Lord's Prayer, and is generic enough to offend the fewest possible, don't count on this prayer to raise up a new generation of godly citizens. "Almighty God, dear heavenly Father. In Thy name let us now in pious spirit, begin our instruction. Enlighten us, teach us all truth, strengthen us in all that is good, lead us not into temptation, deliver us from all evil in order that, as good human beings, we may faithfully perform our duties and thereby, in time and eternity, be made truly happy. Amen." According to the July/August issue of Liberty magazine, these are the words of divine supplication that secondary school students were required to recite in Nazi Germany in the 1930s. So much for government-sponsored school prayer. {taken from Freedom Writer} ... TV is a crutch for those who cannot afford drugs. --- PPoint 1.98 * Origin: WARNING! Do Not Play On Or Around!
