Seniors Hold Prayer Despite Atheist's Threats
Seniors at Louisiana's Bastrop High School went on with prayer during their graduation ceremony May 20, despite threats of a possible lawsuit, plans to cancel the prayer, and contrary advice from a school attorney.

Openly atheist graduate Damon Fowler complained to the superintendent about the traditional prayer and threatened to contact the American Civil Liberties Union if it wasn't removed from the ceremony.

At the recommendation of an attorney, school administrators reprinted all the graduation announcements to rid any mention of prayer in the program. Instead, a "Moment of Silence" was listed. ...

Aha, I thought so. You see bro, when I was retired from work due to ill health, I had to try to do something, and I did a correspondence course at The Writing School, and ended up getting several short stories and articles published. But alas I never continued with it, and eventually got back into open-air evangelism, with tracting and preaching and talking to folks about their need of a Saviour. I always found the greatest blessing in communicating Christ to the needy souls all around me, even though the vast majority showed little or no interest. At least it cemented in my mind the doctrines of grace, showing me that it is only God that can give the increase, while dealing with souls that are spiritually dead.

Brother John, No, I have never been a professional novelist. However, I considered being one many times and considered getting into other professional writing that I liked.

There was a time when I was trying to sort out what I would do with my life. Assessing my skills realistically, I concluded that if I the followed the writing road strenuously, I would have a very high degree of probability of being very successful. Ah, but then the fork in the road problem showed up.

Yogi Berra the ex Yankee catcher has put the problem as, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it." Too bad
Yogi didn't day say which of the two roads to take.

Perhaps, if I sort through some of the ex Yankee slugger Mickey Mantle's old sayings I can find the road I should have taken.

Hello Rick. Thank you for your compliment. Spurgeon certainly had tremendous gifts from God (and still does I believe). What I have read from his works I certainly enjoyed, including my paper back version of
"All of Grace" which I bought decades ago.

I see,
All of Grace is readable on the internet at what looks like the University of Spurgeon's writings.

I am glad to be on S/A also, especially in view of what I was doing with most of my time shortly before coming on S/A.

I thank you for your encouragement, as I also do to my brother Dopey who was a great help to me when I first arrived and could just as easily gone back to doing what I was doing before I arrived.

The Psalmist David was a man soon to be king, though nothing in his life would have given that appearance. He had been anointed King by Samuelin Saul's place. Saul did not have a heart after God like David did. He was God's rod of correction on an unbelieving, God rejecting people; nor did he have the necessary faith that David had to obey the whole counsel of God, fearless of men, in the fear of God, as a type of his son and His Lord.

This psalm is best expounded by David Dickson for serious heart searching: is my heart is really after God? All sinners by nature who are being sanctified in the process of time would find comfort here in some degree. There are very few David's these days who could lead a nation in the fear of God, without fearing the faces of men or worrying about their fortunes, or even about appearances. David through God did valiantly. A worthy hero for any true leader of men.

Agreed Jim,...I was just reading David's example in Psalm 69, together with David Dickson's words on the matter...I forgot the Save me, and started with O God...
ep, my good friend, I was reading your Psalm 69:1 forgetfulness.
Psalm 69:2 forgetfulness of mine is described below:

Psalm 69:2
"I sink in deep mire, where [there is] no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me"

Psalm 69:2 was my life biography before I was "born again", "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."
(1 Peter 1:23) and much of my biography after I was "born again".

The "mire" I was involved in each case were numerous incidents, but I did relate one bad incident, after I was "born again", in one of my comments.

I forgot how to get out of the mess described in Psalm 69:2

that being:

to call upon my savior
the Lord Jesus Christ to save me
out of that mess.

Romans 10:13
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Agreed Jim, now effectual and fervent prayer was demonstrated by a number of God's servants. Why, I was just reading David's example in Psalm 69, together with David Dickson's words on the matter. Sometimes in the heat of the frey a poor can complain to God easier then plead. I forgot the Save me, and started with O God...

It is comforting to hear from Mr.Dickson the canonical historic testimony of David and his Lord.

One should know the purpose of Prayer.

A sermon on the topic, A Call to Pray for the Salvation of All

1 Timothy
2:1 First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men,
2 for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
3 This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.---NASB

I am relatively sure that most here will commend the girl's courage in the face of her opposition for taking a stand against the atheist's threats. I read the article, I listened to the video clip and sorrow filled my mind affecting my emotions and will.
Big brains, little brains what difference does it make.
Isaiah 2:22

But for what it's worth; it would have been better for her to stay home, not graduate and not be asked to give into the pressure of going in either direction, contrary the the Truth. It is never wise to choose between two evils, it is better to wait patiently for God.
