Critics: Evangelicals 'hijacked' National Day of Prayer
WASHINGTON — Is the upcoming National Day of Prayer a day for all Americans — or just evangelicals?

That's what some critics are charging in advance of the May 1 observances as they call for a more inclusive approach to an event they say has been "hijacked" by conservative Christians.

Jews on First, a 2 and 1/2-year-old online organization, has questioned the application process for coordinators affiliated with the National Day of Prayer Task Force, which is headed by Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family founder James Dobson. ...

I never like "inner-faith" style prayer meetings or rallies either. Participation leads to the Unitarian way of believing, which will lets in the homo-agenda and Oprah style thinking. I may not agree with all of you guys on every issue, but I do say we are all praying to God the Father through the name of Jesus (God the Son). Any other prayers don't make it out of the room. It is basically that we are all filthy and unworthy to approach God, but if God sees Christ rather than us, then He will hear the prayers. That's also why we must be realistic or Christ-like when we make our requests. God is not a genie waiting to grant all of our wishes, we are lucky He loves us enough to listen at all.

Max, I wholeheartedly agree with your post. We MUST stand firm in the faith, not wavering or compromising in any way. "But my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him" Heb. 10:38 These are perilous times, with deception and apostasy ever growing. Many have already fallen away from true, saving faith, their superficial belief is not enough to enable them to endure the wave of deception. May God strengthen and keep His remnant, may we boldly profess His truth, even, if need be, to the death.

As a Christian I will only kneel with a non-believer if that person is crying out to God for forgiveness and mercy in a true act of repentance by asking Jesus into their life.

I will not kneel with a non-believer as they pray to their God and I pray to mine. I will not pray with Romansts, Mohammedoms or any obscure cult claiming to be followers of Christ.

My prayers would be corrupted like good meat cooked alongside rancid, bacteria ridden meat, both spoiled and useless!

Stand against ecumenicalism, stand against one world faith. Stand against a peace not built on Christ!

Ah, gentlemen, just to show you there is widespread agreement with you, (and of course, anything hijacked, should be returned ) I would point out,

Gil Rugh wrote:
Prayer is not an option available to every person on the earth. We sometimes have a national day of prayer or a world day of prayer, but we must keep in mind that God does not honor the prayers of everyone. Prayer is a family matter, a privilege given to those who can call God “Father.” That does not mean that a person who can call God “Father,” is better than someone else, leads a more exemplary life than someone else or has done more for the good of humanity than someone else. Prayer is based upon a family relationship with God.
from, Prayer

I have quite mixed emotions about the "National Day of Prayer".

I do not believe that a born again Christian has any business whatsoever in joining in or participation with anykind of ecumenical let alone interfaith prayer or worship service.

Where I worked in Tennessee employee led, employee initiated events were okay and for a few years we sought to have people we took to be Christians lead in various areas to pray for. The meeting was open to anyone who wanted to attend but as the employees who organized the event we selected Christians to lead at the microphone so we wouldn't be surprized with a Muslim or Witch hijacking the event to their false beliefs.

It works pretty good untill it became an issue of those leading in music to claim their Catholic musican friends were genuine Christians at which time I declined to participate.

btw with Ravi Zacharias not mentioning the Lord Jesus Christ in his prayer for this years event I would not support the event he is speaking at.

This article mentions James Dobson, it mentions Shirley Dobson, it mentions George Bush. It refers to "talking points, sample letters to governors and a list of "alternative inclusive observances."" And it speaks of the conflict between parties who seem to want to be the "star" of the organization.
But there is no mention of Christ, of the Holy Spirit or of Holy Scripture. I conclude that they need to pray.
