Reclaiming God: a national day of prayer event for conservative values

TOLEDO, Ohio (May 4, 2009) — The Children of Liberty announces today that it is sponsoring an event for the 2009 National Day of Prayer. This non-denominational event will feature speakers, prayer, music and contemplative silence.

“The National Day of Prayer is a day set aside for all Americans to pray for their country,” said Children of Liberty Founder, Scott Allegrini “We are proud, as conservatives, to value the role of God in our personal lives and honor the Natural Law upon which our country was founded”

“Reclaiming God: A National Day of Prayer Event for Conservative Values” will take place on Thursday, May 7, 2009 at International Park. The event will begin at 7pm and will include speakers from area churches. Topics will include: The Constitution and Natural Law; the Individual Inspired to Greatness; Family Values; Pro Life; Military and Civil Servants and the Moral Obligations of Our Elected Officials. Musical interludes will be included between speakers and a candlelight vigil will conclude the event.
J Todd Hostetler, YES FM station manager, will act as emcee.

WHO WE ARE
The Children of Liberty is a conservative meetup.com group comprised of citizen members, and is not affiliated with any political party. The Children of Liberty, maintaining the integrity of the founding fathers and the Constitution, have espoused five conservative values as their guiding principles. One of these principles is “To reclaim God in our lives, and in so doing, secure His place at the center our country’s social and political conscience. Natural law is the basis of our liberties, and we have a moral obligation to protect America’s Divine providence.”
WHY A NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
The men who conceived our nation drew strength, wisdom and inspiration from prayer and referred on numerous occasions to the necessity of relying on the Almighty God. Since our nation’s inception, nearly every President has called the nation to prayer during critical times. Ronald Reagan once said, “If we ever forget we are one nation under God, we will be a nation gone under.”

ABOUT THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER
· On April 17, 1952, President Truman signed into law the observance of a National Day of Prayer, and designated it as a floating holiday
· In 1988 there was a joint declaration by President Reagan and Congress, designating the first Thursday of every May as the annual National Day of Prayer
· May 7th, 2009 will mark the 58th annual observance of the National Day of Prayer

“The National Day of Prayer provides an opportunity for the community of faith to exercise our freedom to gather – to worship and to pray as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. More than ever, we must say together, ‘Prayer is America’s Hope.’” Shirley Dobson, Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force

The national organizers have not yet received his confirmation. There is certainly lots to pray about in our country.

Fifty-seven years is a long standing tradition? I guess that makes me a national treasure, too.

Children of Liberty is a blatantly political organization.

Hopefully Obama will boycott this event. There should be no government-sanctioned national day of prayer

Why not..we have a federal holiday dedicated to a baptist preacher and you dont bitch about that...

Oh...that would mean you'd have to be consistant...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

I wonder if that baptist preacher would attend a national day of prayer?

When I think of MLK, I typically think of the civil rights movement. I think this is true of most people. But to remain consistent, I don't see any need for ANY national religious holidays.

I bet you take them off though...

Nope, I work on those days.

I do get holiday pay, but I donate it to non-religious entities.

Even though Thanksgiving is not a religious holiday you continue to work it. I am sure your savior will appreciate your contribution of tax dollars to the welfare state!

Then who're you thanking?

For providing at least one competitive game that day.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

"Dallas. For providing at least one competitive game that day."

That may be the quote of the year. Thanks

I'm sure NAMBLA appreciates your donations...

I don't have a "savior". And there are tons of people who work on holidays, religious or not
