Despite what secular liberals might say, this nation is founded on Christian principles.
Generations of Americans have thrived because of their faith in God and strong morals, founded on the Bible.
Even though in recent years it seems our country has fallen away from faith, there are still millions of Americans that believe. Their faith and commitment to family values are what make American strong and resilient.
Most presidents throughout our history have acknowledged the foundation of faith of the United States. They have worked to preserve the religious freedom of every American. More than that, they have honored the Christian faith.
The National Day of Prayer is a significant day in our country, where all Americans are encouraged to pray for our leaders. It is also an opportunity for our president to show his faith and concern for Americans.
That’s just what President Trump is doing this year. Something, by the way, that Obama refused to do in the eight years he was president.

From Western Journalism:
President Donald Trump will do something this week that Barack Obama did not do in his entire eight years in office: host a National Day of Prayer event at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed earlier this week that Trump will be taking part in the annual observance on Thursday, May 4, as thousands of events are held nationwide.
While previous presidents including Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush held gatherings at the White House honoring the day, Obama did not, choosing instead to simply issue proclamations concerning the occasion.
The National Day of Prayer was established by law during the presidency of Harry S. Truman in 1952. The legislation called on the president to designate a day other than Sunday for the American people to gather in prayer for the nation.
And here is Trump delivering this moving declaration in the company of quite the crowd:
While President Obama claimed to respect America’s religious heritage, his actions and policies were often against it. In Trump we have a president that not only acknowledges the faith that has shaped our country, but embraces it.
Holding a special ceremony at the White House for the National Day of Prayer is more than just lip service. He isn’t interested in impressing the millions of Christian citizens. He genuinely wants this day to be one of faith and prayer.
It’s odd that President Obama not once spent the time to hold a ceremony. The National Day of Prayer has been an institution for generations. Yet Obama refused to show respect for Americans of faith by taking the time to participate in the event.
This speaks volumes of the kind of leadership we had in the Obama administration. They were all political. There was no spiritual center to that White House, no strong conviction of morals or values.
Thankfully we now have a presidency that respects our faith. President Trump will work to strengthen the Biblical roots of the United States.
