Prayer, Should It Be Allowed?

  The following article came to me recently and I contended that I should pass it on.  It has been slightly edited and a conclusion added.

 Dear God,

AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE!

Let's see, I think it started when the satanic imbodied Madeline Murray O'Hare complained she didn't want any prayer in our schools.  And we let one sick satanic mind controlled individual choose our future for us and we said, OKAY!
AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE!!
----------------------------------------------------
Then, someone said you better not read the Bible in school, you've got to keep the Separation of Church and State thing right,, after all, the Bible says "thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbors as yourself,"
And we said, OKAY!

AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE !

Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave...because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem. And we said, an expert should know what he's talking about so we won't spank them anymore..
AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE.....
-------------------------------------------------------------
Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave. And the school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued.  And we accepted their reasoning...
AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE!!
------------------------------------------------------------------
Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't even have to tell us parents.  And we said, that's a grand idea...
AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE!!
----------------------------------------------------------------
Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms they want, so they can have all the fun they desire, and they won't have to tell us parents that they got them at school.  And we said, that's another great idea...
AND SATAN LAUGHED WITH GLEE!!
------------------
Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs.
And we said, it doesn't matter what anybody, including the President, does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good... and Satan laughed with Glee!!
---------------------------------------------------------------
And someone else took that sick idea a step further and published pictures of nude children and then stepped further still by making them available on the Internet.  And we said, everyone's entitled to free speech....
and SATAN laughed with Glee!!
------------------------------------------------------------------
And the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that promote profanity, violence and illicit sex... And let's record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes... And we said, it's just entertainment and it has no adverse effect and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead...
and SATAN and all his angels laughed with glee!!
------------------
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, classmates or even themselves.
And Satan and his angels are laughing hard with glee!!
------------------
Undoubtedly, if we thought about it long and hard enough, those of us who have a mind not controlled by satan, could figure it out. I'm sure it has a great deal to do with... "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW"!!

LIFE IS GOD'S PLAN, and we all are going to have to answer for our own personal score....!!

    Plainly, don’t get short changed.  Let’s be ready to meet our Maker.  The Bible (in Acts) teaches that to avoid hell and gain heaven - one must:

1) Believe In Jesus As Savior (16:31) 

2) Repent Of Sins  (17:30)  

3) Confess Christ Audibly (8:37) 

4) Be Baptized In  Water (2:38)  

5) Live A  Christian Life (14:22)  

6) Be Active In the Church (2:47)
