“If my people who are called my name humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is telling Georgians they cannot pray. Will you join us in exercising your First Amendment right at a time of prayer we are hosting at the Capitol on Wednesday, November 15th, at 10:30am?
In case you missed it, FFRF, a group of atheists working to stamp out faith around the country, demanded that Coach John Small, of East Coweta High School, refrain from participating in any team prayer. FFRF, an organization based in Wisconsin not Georgia, then proceeded to tell this Georgia coach and players that prayer “plagued the school district’s athletic programs.” The liberal school board then all-too-willingly complied.
I dare FFRF to tell us we can’t pray too!
We are working to determine next steps in East Coweta, and we will continue to fight for religious freedom across our state. However, we must surround our efforts in prayer. We hope you will join us in prayer for our state next Wednesday! We will meet at the Rotunda of the state Capitol at 10:30am. If you have additional questions, feel free to email Family Policy Alliance of Georgia.
What to do with all the discouraging news- If you were following elections in Georgia and around the country on Tuesday, you were likely very discouraged. Radical leftists were swept into statewide office in Virginia, where they also won a number of legislative seats. Once a conservative stronghold, that state is now thoroughly blue. Could the same thing happen in Georgia? Though we had fewer legislative seats on the ballot, liberals flipped a significant number of those seats. So, what do we do? It is essential that we lock in on winning in 2018 NOW! We must nominate true conservatives and do all we can to deliver major victories here in Georgia. We are here for such a time as this!
What to pray for- It certainly is frightening to live in a society that strips you of your First Amendment rights simply because you work in a school system or own a business. What a sharp deviation from what our Founders intended! Please lift up religious freedom here in Georgia and around the country.
In His Service,
President and Executive Director
