The Pledge of Allegiance "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." (US history), is how we have been saying the pledge since 1954, so why is it that after fifty years we find a dilemma with the phrase "under God."

Prayer in School

today are without school prayer, most schools have replaced prayer, with a "Silent moment of reflection." Also, the assumption if there is a God or not is a big question as well. I think prayer should be re-instated into schools, because children should be able to express religion freely. I also feel that lack of discipline; youth pregnancy, dropouts, and violence in schools are other issues that can be more controllable if there were religious classes and school prayer.

Prayer should never be included in public schools; prayer in the classroom deviates from the Founding Father’s vision, excludes other religious activities/rituals and ostracizes individuals who do not participate in prayer in the classroom. For generations, children have said the Pledge of Allegiance in school, but many people might not know that...

Importance of Prayer

Importance of Prayer What is Prayer Prayer is the utterance from your spirit to God. In simple terms, talking to God is called prayer. It's the simple opening of one's heart to our Father in Heaven. It's coming to Him and telling Him everything in your heart. Then, why do we find praying so complicated? Those of us who say, 'I don't pray because I don't know how to pray, haven't understood that prayer is just being yourself and talking to God with honesty and sincerity.

Should the Pledge be said in schools?

The pledge of Allegiance should not be said in schools; or at least not every day. The monotony of repetition dulls true impact of the pledge, and the words stop being anything besides a day-to-day annoyance. The Pledge is exactly that; a promise. In reciting it as a routine it loses its meaning. To “pledge” something is to make a solemn promise. Most students I know use the time set aside for the pledge to screw off. No promises there, let alone solemnness. They don’t care as they solemnly...
