The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer. Prayer for our Nation offered by Tony Evans Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You today as a humble people desperate for Your supernatural intervention on behalf of our beloved nation. First, we thank You for all the blessings You have bestowed on our land, blessings that have allowed us to bring so much good and benefit to not only our own citizens but also to the rest of the world. The very ideals upon which this country was founded were based on biblical truths, no matter how some try to rewrite history to deny that very fact today. This is why our hearts are so broken over how You continue to be marginalized and dismissed by both our people and our institutions. We are also saddened by the fact that Your people have contributed greatly to the spiritual apathy that now engulfs us. Our satisfaction in remaining religious without being fully committed to living out the truths of Your Word has caused us to become co-conspirators with the forces of evil that are destroying us as a society. It is for this reason that we personally and collectively repent of our carnality and recommit ourselves to becoming visible and verbal disciples of Jesus Christ. Enable us, by Your Spirit, to no longer be secret-agent Christians but rather to publicly declare and live out Your truth in a spirit of love so that You feel welcome in our country once again. Thank You for Your promise to hear our prayers when we call to You with hearts of repentance and obedience, which is how we are appealing to You today, Father. On behalf of Your church, we affirm afresh the priority You are to us that You would fill every dimension of our lives as we seek to bring You glory through the advancement of Your kingdom in our personal lives, our family lives, and in the lives of our churches and our government leaders. We confidently invite heaven’s intervention into all the affairs of our nation and we praise You in advance for Your answer. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
The United States is supposed to provide all Americans, regardless of circumstances, what Lincoln called "an open field and fair chance" to make the most of their God-given talents. Those who are born into meager circumstances need access to a good education so they can acquire the knowledge and skills they will need if they want to improve their lot in life.
K-12 education is properly the province of states and localities. This is why I have consistently opposed federal mandates like those included in No Child Left Behind as well as Common Core, which the Obama administration coerced states into implementing as a condition of receiving Race to the Top funds. At the same time, Congress has plenary authority over the District of Columbia and local education in D.C. is within the Article I purview of Congress.
That is why this week I voted in favor of reauthorizing the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, which provides scholarships for low-income children living in Washington, DC to attend a school of their choice, including private schools. The bureaucracy of the D.C. school system has proven resistant to change and many poor kids in D.C. need a way to get out of a poor performing system. This program is a lifeline to students who would normally be confined to a failing school. We need to give every child the chance to succeed.
In Fiscal Year 2015, Immigration and Customs Enforcement released nearly 20,000 criminals who were in the United States illegally. Their crimes included 614 sex offenses, 804 robberies, 216 kidnappings, and 196 homicide-related convictions. These numbers are startling.
When the federal government knowingly releases, rather than repatriates, a convicted criminal who is illegally in the country, it is placing the safety of American people at risk. When someone like Casey Chadwick gets killed by an illegal immigrant convict who got released by ICE, it is a predictable consequence of the federal government's failure.
Watch my opening statement at this week's Oversight and Government Reform Hearing investing the Obama Administration's policies and procedures.
This is a problem that I have been highlighting on the committee. In February 2015, I called a subcommittee hearing to investigate this issue and the committee heard from Mr. Jamiel Shaw, whose son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, had been murdered by a an illegal immigrant who had previously been arrested for multiple violent crimes and then released. Watch Mr. Shaw's emotional testimony here.
The Obama Administration's failure to enforce our immigration laws is putting the American people at risk. ICE refuses to get tough on criminals -- and too many Americans have paid the price.
