Recently Fox News ran an article entitled ‘God’ left out of Biden’s National Day of Prayer proclamation. Not that I questioned the veracity of the report, given President Joe Biden’s campaign to eradicate natural law from society as per his pro-LGBTQI policies, I was, nevertheless, compelled by curiosity to read exactly what the proclamation stated. After all, what is prayer if one does not invoke God?
It is important to know that the National Day of Prayer is an annual day of observance, designated by the U.S. Congress, when people are asked “to turn to God in prayer and meditation.” President Harry Truman, in 1952, signed into law an annual National Day of Prayer; in 1988, President Ronald Reagan amended the law by permanently setting the day as the first Thursday of every May. The president is required by law to sign a proclamation each year encouraging all Americans to pray to God on this day.
Yet, unlike his predecessors (even former President Barack Obama), who explicitly mentioned “God” in their National Day of Prayer proclamations, Biden’s proclamation does, in fact, omit any invocation to our Creator.
