Christians from across the Gulf of Mexico are calling on God’s help in this time of trial.

On May 6th, the National Day of Prayer Christians came together at city hall in Biloxi, Mississippi to pray for various needs…with a theme of “Such a Time as This. A main focus of prayer for the day was the oil spill crisis. “We pray for protection of our coast and protection of the businesses that profit from this resource. Protect our shores. Protect our land. And protect our habitat,” was the prayer of David Oliver, of Cedar Lake Christian Assembly.

Venice, Louisiana, is a small shrimping community that is praying for God’s help in this time of crisis.  Steve McNeal, pastor of First Baptist Mission in Venice hosted an impromptu prayer service shortly after the oil started heading their way. “One day that we prayed was right after they fond out there was not going to be shrimping anymore, so we prayed and the next day they announced that they were going to use the shrimpers as part of the cleanup and pay them at a pretty good amount to use their boats and their crews to go out and clean up.” McNeal said. As Southern Baptist watch coverage of the oil spill on the news. McNeal urges them to pray for Venice and people along the coast whose lives are impacted by this disaster.

One Sunday afternoon, Pastor Rick Long of Christian Life Church called together a group of men, women, children,  school officials, and local business owners around a cross at Cotton Bayou for prayer concerning the oil spill crisis.

About 100 churches in the gulf states held prayer vigils this past Monday from Destin, Florida, to the Louisiana state line gathered to pray. Christians prayed for the oil leak to stop and the spill to not reach their shores. Church embers also prayed for volunteers, oil workers, scientists, and the families of the lives lost in the explosion. Included in this vigil were nearly 150 people in Dauphin Island, Alabama. Upwards of a thousand residents met across the gulf to pray for the end to the oil spill organized by the Gulf Christian Evangelistic Association.

As more and more Christians come together and pray for this tragedy in our Gulf waters…what miraculous things will come of this which we call a disaster?

I’m not all political for the most part …but when you mess with my Jesus …or you mess with the right for prayer…it get’s me kind of riled up for sure.

The City Council of Lancaster, California is being sued for opening its meetings with Christian prayer.

By a three-to-one margin, voters in the Los Angeles County city voted last month to make the invocations policy.

Mayor R. Rex Parris stated in February that he wanted to “grow a Christian community” as he intended the tradition of opening the City Council meetings with pastor-led prayer.

Of course, the ACLU is involved and has demanded that  the Lancaster City Council cease immediately what they see as an unconstitutional practice. A letter outlining the complaints states that in 2002, the California Court of Appeal upheld a Superior Court ruling that concluded that a prayer given by the city of Burbank “in the name of Jesus Christ” violated the First Amendment. The court ordered the city to cease opening its meetings with sectarian prayers, and to inform anyone conducting a prayer that sectarian prayers are prohibited.

The city of Lancaster has until August 14 to respond to the letter…and I’m sure the ACLU isn’t through with this yet …and I’ll be keeping up with it to see the outcome.

I mean a Christian mayor …do we still have Christian politicians out there anymore? …it looks like we do.

…and one who isn’t afraid to stand up for what he feels is right.

So should we look at this prayer in the name of Jesus – as something that is unconstitutional? Should we separate prayer from our government institutions and leave it only to the churches?

Even the money I have in my wallet (not that I have much!) states “In God We Trust” – I sure trust Him. Not a god with a little “G” but the one true God …and I will call on His name – the name above any other – anytime – anywhere …for as long as I have breath.

…and that’s constitutional.

…just sayin.
