US National Day of Prayer

US National Day of Prayer First of let me say this, or maybe ask, who are we (totality of the US nation) praying to? What's the point? I absolutely struggle with days like this in our godless culture. Maybe not so much struggle with why, but struggle thinking about how the One True God, the …
