June 25, 1963 the Supreme Court struck down legislation that would allow school prayer. The case was Engel V. Vitale. It was a 22 word prayer that went like this:

"Almighty God we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers, and our country".

Since then:

• Teen pregnancies are up 400%

• Our parents...Divorce rate has 600% ~ equal among the secular and Christians

• Our teachers...S.A.T. scores at an all time low

• Our country...is 3rd from the bottom on the global education scene … and the list is unending

When we remove God from the human equation, man is left without hope and without a standard of truth to direct us.
