In response to the Examiner’s front-page last week (City officials stand firm behind prayer in Thursday’s Independence edition, “Shall we pray: Independence council has been asked not to” in Friday’s Blue Springs edition). Have we forgotten our forefathers and how our free America came about? I think we need to go back in history and see how we started our free country.

Come on, if we call ourselves a Christian nation, we need to stand up and say so. My Bible tells me not to worry about anything but pray about everything (Philippians 4:6).

Thank you, Mayor Don Reimal, for your stand. May your tribe increase. If we don’t need to pray to God now, when did we?
