National Day of Prayer for the Family

If you missed the news, today is the National Day of Prayer. I don't know about you, but for me, every day has to be a day of prayer. In fact, First Thessalonians 5:17 tells believers to pray continuously not just once per year!

Anyway, here's a little twist on today's prayer event. I think we need a national day of prayer for the family.

Here in Colorado, many of our lawmakers think that family should be "broader; more inclusive." Their bottom line- a definition of the family which a decade ago would have been laughed at.

This is really not a political issue but a cultural one. Now some will say, "what's the harm?' Others would chime in and say that a broadening of terminology only helps those on the outside looking in. For afterall, don't we want people to be happy no matter what "gathering" they choose? Afterall, we are an enlightened and tolerant culture...

These sentiments have caused me to seek for a national day of prayer for the family.
