On June 25, 1962, the United States Supreme Court declared prayer in schools unconstituional. A man by no means perfect, but who always carried a copy of the Constitution in his shirt pocket, the God-fearing and repentant Senator Roberty Byrd (D-West Virginia) warned Congress about "such a disastorous decision." On June 27, 1962, he said:
"Inasmuch as our greatest leaders have shown no doubt about God's proper place in the American birthright, can we, in our day, dar do less? In no other place in the United States are there so many and such varied official evidences of deep and abiding faith in God on the part of government as there are here in Washington
(DC). Every session of the House and the Senate begins with prayer. Each house has its own chaplain.
A small room in the Capitol, just off the rotunda is for the private prayer and meditation of members of Congress. The room's focal point is a stained glass window showing George Washington kneeling in prayer and these words from Psalm 16:1 'Preserve me, O God, for in Thee I do put my trust.'
Speaker of the House
at top reads:
"In God We Trust"'In God We Trust' appears opposite the vice-president of the United States... same phrase backdrops the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Above the head of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court are the Ten Commandments, with the great American eagle protecting them. Moses is included among the great lawgivers in marble sculpture on the east front...
"To remove God from this country will destroy it."
Patriot's Prayer: God watch over and reawaken this nation to Your power and glory.
Patriot's Promise: "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD." ~Psalm 33:12
