This is both a Politics/Current Events and Religion post. Do you think it's appropriate for the Government to proclaim a National Day of Prayer? Do Christians or any other religion feel its necessary to have one day set apart and proclaimed a day to pray?
How appropriate do you think praying for materialistic things is? Last year we had a large group of people gather at a gas station to pray for God to lower gas prices. Today we had a large group of people gather outside a UAW hall to pray for GM and Chrysler for them to get through their financial crisis and call employees back to work. Personally, I think praying for such things is terrible. Isn't there something more humble that these people could pray for than that, like for the families to be safe, for their health, for them to not be hungry or just for God's devine protection during their time of struggle?

I know... God forbid we have a National Day of Prayer... something our country is in desperate need of... but let's have a National Islam Day and celebrate their victory of Sept. 11th!
This is exactly what's wrong with our country!!!

Meh, I really don't care. As long as I'm not forced to pray and it's all inclusive not specific to one religion it doesn't bother me.
National Islam day? What are you dense, anon? No such thing.
