Christians to pray for atheists on April Fool's Day
According to the Bible, "the fool says in his heart there is no God" (Psalm 14:1) and this April 1st, some Christians will honor the day by praying for atheists. At least those who are joining the Pray for an Atheist fan page on Facebook will. Here's the tag-line that introduces the site:
Do you believe God can do amazing things through prayer? We want you to select an atheist friend or relative and pray for them by name each day during the month of April, 2010 (and beyond!). It‚Äôs easy and could make an eternal difference for someone you love....
From the article, "UNDERSTAND how people become atheists through resources ('The Making of an Atheist' by James Spiegel, professor of philosophy and religion at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana)" I doubt if there are a few reasons why a person is an atheist. It is usually because he thinks he's God, and has no place for Jesus in his life. One should wonder if there is such a thing as an atheist? Truth Everyone Knows About God. So, yes you can have Prayer for those issues and peoples that concern you, but keep it in proper perspective.
